That is a very likely possibility. I believe the sensor for that vehicle is about $150 and is not that hard to change yourself. If you have an autozone or similar store near you they can hook the code scanner and tell you the cause of the check engine light for free. Once you have that information you can proceed knowing instead of guessing. Also I believe that precision tune will perform the same service but I am not positive it is at no charge. Once you determine if the sensor is at fault it is not that hard to change. It is mounted on the outside of the transmission right near where the axle comes in (on my girlfriends similar vehicle it was on the passenger side). It is best to change it from the top of the car with a deep socket and an extension (have to worm your arm in there).

That all depends on what is causing the transmission to slip. Faulty speed sensors normally do not cause slipping. It can cause erratic, hard, or late shifting, but slipping is not usually included in that. If you want to know what is causing your transmission to slip, the place to start would be to scan your onboard computer system for fault codes and then properly diagnose the codes that are retrieved. Please note that fault codes NEVER tell you what parts to replace, they only tell you which of the many systems monitored by the computer are operating outside their designed range.

Well a faulty speed sensor could affect shifting, but not the act of the transmission going from in gear to in neutral.
