Its in different locations depending on if its 2wd or 4wd. For 2wd its in front of the drice shaft or for 4wd its in the tranfer case, just look for a white shape like box with wires plugged into it and you need a socket to remove it, iam not sure how much it is to replace as the cost varies at different shops.

I have a 1998 dodge caravan 3.3L fault codes p0500 p0700 p0720 p0715, how do I repair and replace sensors to pass smog test

Follow the links for each fault code.
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction
P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P0715 sets when there is an error in the transmission's input speed sensor signal. On the front of the trans there is an input and output speed sensor that the trans controller looks at for shifting control.

While the code could have set because of a wiring or connection problem, it's almost surely the sensor. Input speed sensor failures are not uncommon.

The input speed sensor is mounted right on the front of the trans directly under where the cooler lines attach. It threads directly in and has a 1" hex for a socket for removal. If the wiring and connection look visibly ok then I would recommend replacing the sensor

I think you mean P0720.
The speed sensor should be mounted on the side of the transmission with either a threaded body or a flat plate with one bolt hole. Depends on which transmission you have.
You can look up the part on the online auto parts store websites to see what it looks like.

Check engine light code P0720...failed output shaft speed sensor or electrcal problem...what is a speed sensor..can i buy the part

The output shaft speed sensor lets the computer know how fast you are going down the road to help it pick gear change points..
Yes, you can buy one and replace it.
First check the wires and plug going to it.
Your manual will probably describe its location better than me, but it will be toward the rear of the gearbox and usually has a small gear on the end that meshes with a mating gear on the output shaft as you put it in.
