Question about 1993 Mercury Villager
How do I remove a speed sensor that's stuck in the transmission of a Mercury Villager?
Very difficult. They corrode in place due to steel contacting aluminum.
Soak base with penetrating oil. Tap steel base on side with chisel to break it loose. Try to get vice grip on base and tap back and forth to twist it back and forth to free up. It takes a lot of effort and time.

it is a bit of a time consuming job it would be best to get a diagram to see where everything goes as this will help you alot otherwise take to a mechanic.

We have a 1997 Mercury Villager. I don't know how different it is from ours. We cannot remove the back seat. We can remove the middle seat and slide the back seat forward. I hope this helps.

Check the 10 wire connector going into the transmission for water or corrosion. This could cause inadvertant shifting but would also probably set the check engine light. The throttle position sensor could also cause this. Speed sensors screw into the transmission from the outside and would cause a limp in condition where it wouldn't shift out of second gear.

According to the Haynes manual it is under the intake manifold, Upper and lower intake manifolds must be removed for access. If you go to Auto Zone, they have the sensor and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the knock sensor with common tools. Good luck and hope this help.
