Looking from above you need to remove the air filter housing to make life simple. look down the back over the starter motor and you will see the diff housing with the sensor just on the top. from underneath you wont see it but its easy to feel.

I'm a fairly mechanical female with a 2002 kia sedona that had this problem. Dealers quoted hundreds and hundreds to fix it. one mechanic quoted $600, another $300. I didn't have the money. If I could fix it, anyone with mechanical aptitude can. I bought the input sensor from Napa ($63). It is under the air filter housing and you must move the big hose over to get in there to remove it. HINT: clean the area carefully BEFORE removing the old sensor. I used a brush then several Q-tip dipped in alcohol. Removing and replacing the sensor is nothing compared to the prep and just finding it. Good luck with it. It fixed the failsafe downshifting issue completely. ALSO you MUST reset the sensor after replacing it. So, replace it somewhere you can pull right out onto a road and do the reset. First drive slowly without stopping and take it carefully through all gears to the top gear. Then stop. Then drive through all the gears without stopping but this time do it aggressively. This is a little tricky, but a MUST DO part of the process. Hope this helped!

Speed sensor


Speedometer sensor measures axle(driveshaft) speed for your speedometer gauge.
Input speed sensor measures the speed of the input shaft of the transmission.
The output speed sensor measures the output shaft, the ECM compares these two signals to determine the amount of clutch slippage and adjusts parameters accordingly for optimal operation.

FINDING THE LOCTION OF INPUT SPEED SENSOR ON KIA


The speed sensor is located on the right side facing the driver side. It is on the transmission under the air filter and air line that leads to the intake manifold. It is on the left side of the transmission. It is not on top of the transmission but on the left side of the transmission close to the firewall. It is best to raise the car and locate it from underneath.

I have a 2002 kia sedona and occacionly the car jumps while i am driving and then runs very rough...I have learned that when i shut the car off and turn it back on it seems to run normal again


Sounds like either an input or an output shaft speed sensor. In a nut shell, the transmission's shifting is controlled electronically; at a stop or very slow speed, the transmission is automatically in first gear...when these sensors 'sense' that the vehicle is travelling at a certain speed, it tells the transmission to shift into second. At the next specified speed, it shifts into third; etc. etc. What it sounds like is that one of these sensors is going bad, telling the transmission to downshift, but the other sensor is fighting that command and causing the vehicle to 'act' like it's running rough, when in reality it's probably just the transmission rapidly jumping between gears. These sensors aren't particularly cheap, but are pretty easy to replace. Start by finding a shop that will plug in a code reader for you (or do it yourself if you have one). You're looking for a code in the range of 0715 to 0723. If it reads 0715 to 0718, that's the input side. 0720 to 0723 is the output side. Good luck.

Sounds like the transmission is downshifting to passing gear. Might the electronic control module for the transmission. Have someone pull the codes from the computer, I'll bet there is one in there for the transmission.
