Koumer: Shocks are not replaced base off of mileage or age, they are replaced based off of they way they perform. They are designed to dampen the suspension movement.
In short, if you push down on the vehicle, and bounce it, you should feel some resistance and the vehicle shouldn't just jump up and bounce around. Usually, you will hear a kind of kushhh sound from the shocks when they are in motion. You also can look at them.
Where the bright silver part (piston) comes out of the cylinder, it should be dry and free of oil. If there is oil accumulated around the area where the piston enters the cylinder, the shock is on it's way out or it has failed.
I hope I haven't been confusing in my explanation.

What turns the speed sensor in tranny 2004 3.5 Can it be repaired without replacing the transmision?

it is driven by a drive gear on the output shaft of the transmission. you could have a bad driven gear that is the gear that is driven to create the electrical pulses to show a speed. the drive gear on some transmissions are part of the output shaft and some gears are replaceable without replacing the output shaft. in either case a part can be replaced without replacing the complete transmission.

Cant find the power steering reservoir on the 2001 rodeo to check the fluid

Follow the lines from your steering column (where the return and feeder ports go in and out) up to your steering pump. It will be somewhere being driven by your belt system.

Your shock absorbers should last close to 100,000 miles. If you notice cupping of the tires or the vehicle bounces after hitting a dip in the road then the shocks may need replacing.

Change 2001 rodeo shocks

If you are replacing the shocks anyway, you may be able to snap a vice grip on the shaft so that it won't spin.

Sometimes you can use a pipe wrench too.

If the vehicle is supported on the frame, it will expose more of the shaft.
