Re: 96 ford taurs VSS
The trick is to snake your arm down the back, ajacent to the maifold pipe, and unplug the wiring harness. Should be a 10mm socket to unscrew the bolt that holds the sensor in place. Once the screw was out it was easy to pull the sensor out and rush to Auto Zone and get a new one. Reverse the process in putting the sensor in.

Changing the VSS on a 99 Ford Taurus 3.0L Duratec 24Valve DOHC engine. Symptoms: ... Replacing VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor. Larry W.
I think you mean the Vehicle Speed Sensor(VSS).It is located on the transmission,somewhere on the portion of the housing that contains the differential and axles.Most speed sensors are a 2 wire unit,and often the wires are tightly twisted to reduce electromagnetic interference(this will probably help in identifying it)
i Have 96 Taurus, may help you. May be a little different on 93. good luck. please rate if this is what you need.
