Yes you can! most front wheel drive sensors are on the front of the transmission.

Speed sensor failed. can i replace it


Sure you can if a mechanic can do it so can you if you have the right tools and knowlege. First you need to know which one thers's one at each whell at the fround rear end housingf the rear rear end housing and the one in the side of the transfer case where the speedometer cable would'of connected on an older model and then theors three in the sides of the trans mission, Touque converter speed forward turbine speed output turbine speed. What proble are you trying to fix? the speedometer not working? Abs light on? Cheack engine light on? Cruise control not working? If the cruise control does work the speed senser is good and the check engine light will be on if the speed senser is'nt working. If the speed senser is'nt working the car will only take off in low and not shift to seecond or any higher gear as the computer doesn't know how fast the car is going. If the speedometer is'nt working and it does shift and cruise and the check engine light is'nt on then the speed senser is working but the speedometer is'nt if it is'nt and everything else is woring then as your driving hit the speedometer with your fist and see if it comes back on they can get stuck and i've fixed quite a few and they stayed fixed. On to wheel drive models with the rear wheels jacked off the ground safty I've run the car up to speed and trying wiggleing the wires and connectors till I wiggled the right thing till the speedometer came on ( including smacking the speedometer ) Just don't hit it too hard as it'll bust just like anything else.

Transmision quit shifting spedomitor quit working


The transmission quit shifting, and the speedometer quit working.
When you say the transmission quit shifting, do you mean you backed out of your driveway, started driving down the street, no speedometer, and you just stayed in 1st as the engine RPM's got higher and higher ?
Please explain what has happened. You should also have a check engine light on in your dash. You will have to plug a OBD II reader in to pull any codes, so we can help you find the problem. Please let us know.

Speedometer problem?


release bearing probably worn out,or pressure plate diaphram fingers worn or broken, or possible input shaft bearing. at any case the clutch needs to be inspected and components repaired or replaced. I see release bearings go out quite often especially when driver likes to keep foot resting on clutch pedal while driving.
