Question about Cars & Trucks
I need help how to find the speed sensor on the "tail shaft housing" of the transmission. I have no clue what that means.
On a Suburban, the tail shaft housing is the part of the transmission where the driveshaft connects.
The sensor should be in the side of the housing, held on with a bracket and bolt.

They are not the sensors you want. The car uses the abs wheel sensors for vehicle speed. Your problem lies in the abs system , possibly the left front sensor, abs ecu or speedo cluster, Clear the code and see if it stay out otherwise you'll need to go to a trusted technician. .

It is located on the front of the transmission. you will see 2 of them one on the left under small transmission lines it is the input then to the right behind the radiator overflow there is the other one. Easiest way to change them is with a 1" deep well socket

usually they are at the back of the tranny with a 2 wire plugin and one bolt holding it in...if not it may be part of your rear ABS sensor in your rear end...do you have any codes about ABS

A 3 SPD TRANS DOES NOT HAVE INPUT/OUTPUT SENSORS..ONLY A VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR..IT IS LOCATED ON TRANS EXTENSION HOUSING WHERE RIGHT SIDE AXLE COMES OUT OF TRANS..1 BOLT AND A WIRE CONNECTOR

If you remove the air filter box, the Input shaft speed sensor can be seen on the top of the transmission, beneath the cable shift linkage. You'll have to remove some brackets to move some electrical cables and the like out of the way, but it's a pretty straight forward remove/install. The output sensor is also on the top of the transaxle, but further back towards the firewall. To differentiate between the two: the input shaft electrical plugs in vertically, the output shaft electrical plugs in horizontally. BE SURE to completely clean all dirt/sand/debris away from the sensors before removing them.
