Have the vehicle scanned for transmission codes. The codes in the computer will guide you to the problem.

The Transmission shifts very hard after the first shift. Check engine light is on as well as the Green overdrive light blinks off and on. Speed sensor was cleaned and even replaced.

Your on the right track. Have you scanned the PCM, what codes did you get? If not and you changed the vehicle speed sensor,(VSS) did you check the (OSS) output shaft speed sensor, it will cause torque converter lock up and hard shifting and that pesky OD light flashing. I have also found that clutch packs inside auto tranny's dry out. Ford and some aftermarket companies sell a fluid that will recondition the clutch packs.

My tcs light on,high rpm , wont shift in overdrive/ is it a sensor in tranny

I also have a 1999 El Dorado, with 188,000 miles. First my TCS light came on once because I was really racing the car. The car's system went into "reset mode" turning off all of the car's computer controlled functions, Starting with TCS, A/C, ABS etc. This was due to the battery or alternator failing to supply enough electrical current under extreme demands for power and performance. I ultimately had to replace my alternator $450.00. Second, I had a "Check Engine" light on because my transmission was not shifting at the proper times. The computer had to be reprogrammed then the shift pattern was fine.

You should check to see if you car's alternator is working properly by starting the car then disconnection the battery cables while it is still running. If your car still runs, then your alt is okay.
I would also have the transmission's program codes checked and reset if necessary to shift at the right time. When they hook one of those Caddy scopes to your car's main computer, it spits out a series of codes. I do not know how to read the codes, I just know that they can be changed to make the car's performance better. I hope this was helpful.

I have a 2001 odyssey and the tcs light came on and the ****** shifts hard and some times it just will not move????

If you have been driving it at all-- there is little chance
of resolving those type trans issues

May end up having to rebuild it-- given the age & the
fact not may transaxles see 100,000 miles

Reverse light on on the dash and shifts hard when i put in reverse. Check engine lights on also trac off light is on.

sounds like you have burnt tranny fluid and if the fluid is burnt so is the tranny and it is soon to give up
pull dip stick out of tranny and smell if it smells like burnt toast it means the trans is on it's way to the recyclers
