have you put a different type of power steering fluid?
in some instance, if they put a different type of fluid, the solution bubbles up and makes a whining noise when you use the car.

Here is the procedure:
The transmission temperature must be between 86° to 130° F (30° to 55° C) before checking With engine running, switch on AC While holding vehicle with brakes, place transmission into each gear briefly With engine running and transmission in park, remove Fill/Check plug. If a small amount of oil runs out, fluid level is correct. If no oil runs out fluid level is low, add fluid as required through Fill/Check plug hole. When level is correct, reinstall Fill/Check plug and tighten to correct torque.

there are two more filters. they are called interior recirculation filters.
one is located under the footwell trim panels for the driver and passenger.after removing the trim panels, look inward toward the center console and follow it back to the firewall.the filter is about 3inches by 4inches. make sure not to inhale the dust from them when removing them..they will cause a sinus headache.I recommend replacing them very 2 years, especially if you use recirculation.

hello ryk786, i/m not a hundred percent certain, but I think the output speed sensor is located at the back of the transmission. With the pan removed, if you look at the valve body and see the EDS valves and connectors, look about 2 inches back toward the end of the case and you should see a connector by itself. There should be a retaining torx bolt and spring holding the sensor in place. After installing the new sensor, do not over-tightend the bolt. The torque should be around 5-6 Nm.

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.
