Probably not
check the condition of the transmission oil and change out if not fresh
clean out the filter in the pan and have the bands and clutch packs adjusted while the pan is off

SOURCE: would speed sensor cause check engine light to

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).

SOURCE: Can a bad output speed sensor cause a transmission to leak?

There is a small o-ring seal so I would say it is possible

SOURCE: Ordered a speed sensor for

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.

SOURCE: will a speed sensor makes the transmission slips out of gear and sometimes does not shift

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

2005 pontiac bonneville transmission slips/ jumps. What could be the problem? The car has to warm up awhile before the problem starts. It sometimes jumps on acceleration or will slip.


Hard to say for sure without doing some testing , hooking up diagnostic tool . You have to understand the electronics an sensors involved in the control of the modern automatic transmission . Engine control sensors could cause erratic transmission operation also . TCC - torque converter clutch , input shaft speed sensors , output shaft speed sensors . Rather then replacing a bunch of parts that don't fix the problem , have a qualified repair shop ,at lest hook up thier diagnostic tool .

O/d off light is flashing


Needed transmission oil replace. If problem came back, replace the the turbine speed sensor (or transmission speed sensor, same thing). I fixed the O/D light flashing problem, but I did it in reverse order. Hopefully it is just dirty transmission oil that cause the problem and you can save yourself from replacing the turbine speed sensor.

Check engine light po 731


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0731 is a transmission fault code and has a generic description of "GEAR RATIO ERROR IN FIRST GEAR".

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the input shaft speed and the output shaft speed of the transmission through the input and output speed sensors. The proper gear ratio will produce a predictable difference between the two sensors. This DTC sets when the expected difference differs greatly from the actual difference between the two speed sensor readings.

This can be caused by several things including:
> Defective input speed sensor
> Defective output speed sensor
> Defective connections or wiring between either speed sensor and the PCM
> Shorted speed sensor circuit
> Open speed sensor circuit
> Slipping clutches inside the transmission

Please note that Transmission Control Module (TCM) replacement WILL NOT correct for this code.

The speed sensor data must be monitored with the proper equipment and the speed sensor circuits must be verified for proper function to determine the actual cause of this fault.

Run a trouble code test on the computer, Kragen auto and others do this for free, I think you may have a bad transmission speed sensor, the code will tell the story.
