You will need a component locator diagram to see where it is and how difficult it is to get to/diagnose.
This is a start: http://www.automotiveforums.com/t956444-locating_windstar_vss__replacing_windstar_vss.html

Does NOT look like an easy job. Sorry.
Pressure wash this area first to make it easier to find and a LOT less dirty.

SOURCE: illustrated diagram on how to remove speed sensor for windstar 98

The Vehicle Speed Sensor is located on transaxle, at the rear of the engine. I would check the harness connector to be sure it is clean and connected tightly. Also check the wiring for cuts and chaffing. Since it is fairly inexpensive, only about $42.00 from Ford, you may want to consider replacing it, at least to eliminate it as a possibility. You may want to go to a muffler shop to have this done like speedy, I believe the flex pipe needs to be undone to get to the VVS. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, you could always ask them for the step by step instructions to replacing the VVS, and it's free of charge. Good luck and hope this helps.

Speed sensor wire where is it? how i can repair or change'


The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC voltage signal to the PCM which determines the corresponding vehicle speed.

Try to replace the sensor yourself. Its accessable throgh the left front wheelwell, next to the axle. It is a 8mm or 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. Good luck. Turbine Shaft Speed (TSS) Sensor Removal and Installation

Were is speed sensor located in a 1999 ford windstar


The Vehicle Speed Sensor is located on the right side of the transaxle extension housing. ( passenger side) It may be hard to spot because it is covered over with a foil type heat shield. If you plan on replacing it yourself please Note, You need to remove the clip and swap the plastic drive gear onto the new sensor and secure it with the clip. Good Luck From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Where is the vss located on a 95 ford windstar. The speedometer went ouit and its shifting crazy.


The vehicle speed sensor is located on transaxle in behind the engine.
Tricky to get at and not an easy replacement.
While it is possible the sensor is bad, the more common issue with your Windstar is the speedometer itself.
You should have it properly diagnosed before replacing parts.
If the speedometer is the defect you will need to replace the instrument panel as an assembly.
Using parts from a recycler will often result with another bad speedometer as it is a very common problem.
Some aftermarket auto supply may be able to get you a rebuilt unit.
if not you may have to get it from Ford.

LEVEL CHECK -manual transmission The vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear), which is located on the transaxle, serves as the manual transaxle's dipstick.
  1. Park the car on a level surface, turn the engine OFF and apply the parking brake.
  2. Locate the speedometer cable assembly where it enters the transaxle.
  3. Unplug the electrical connection from the vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear).
  4. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speed sensor.
  5. Wipe the area around the speed sensor with a clean rag, then loosen the speed sensor retaining bolt.
  6. Gently pry the speed sensor from the transaxle. Fig. 1: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.8L engine 90981g14.gif
    Fig. 2: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.9L and 2.0L engines 90981g15.gif

  7. Check the condition of the speed sensor O-ring and replace it if it is damaged.
  8. Check the fluid level on the speed sensor as illustrated.
  9. If the level is low, place a funnel in the speed sensor hole.
  10. Add the specified fluid to the transaxle until the FULL level is reached. Do not overfill the transaxle.
  11. Install the speed sensor and tighten the retaining bolt to 69–104 inch lbs. (8–12 Nm).
  12. Connect the speedometer cable.
  13. Engage the speed sensor electrical connection. Fig. 3: If necessary, add transmission fluid through a funnel into the speed sensor opening 90981g16.gif
