It shouldn't be, it's just screwed into the side of the transmission.
There is also wheel speed sensors, those are for the abs brakes and mounted behind each wheel.

No, it is actually a easy job you can do. It don't require special tools or removal of a lot.

I have an 2004 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 4.8l with code c0237. How hard is it to replace the throttle position sensor?


C0237? That is an erratic rear speed sensor fault. Is your abs light on? The speed sensor may be unplugged, wire harness damaged, sensor may be failing. The tps is part of the throttle motor assembly. Very expensive, but very easy to change.

Is having a speed sensor replaced expensive


The Volvo will probably cost you $95 diagnostic for the dealership to confirm the sensor is faulty. Then it will be about 1-2hrs labor at a rate of probably $70-$100 per hour. The sensor itself is around $85-$145 depending on which speed sensor it is.

DTC No. 31 is for the right front speed sensor.

DTC No. 32 is for the left front speed sensor.

DTC No. 33 is for the right rear speed sensor

My services traction light comes on on my 05 chevy impala and my abs light doesnt go off neither does my trac light. What could be the problem? and how much would u think i looking at in cost to fix it?


Very common problem. The MOST LIKELY cause is that you have a front wheel speed sensor that is not working properly. This could be due to a bad front wheel bearing assembly or it could be a wiring problem. GM has had a LOT of problems with the wiring harnesses. A company named "DORMAN" makes a harness repair kit. (See picture below) The Dorman part number is: Part Number: 970-041 The wheel speed sensor itself and the wheel bearing come as a complete "HUB" assembly. The wheel bearing should be checked for looseness and the speed sensor should be tested at the speed sensor connector for AC voltage output when the wheel is spinning. If the bearing or the sensor is bad, then you must replace the hub assembly. If this is the case, I recommend using the "Timken" hub assemblies. They are more expensive, but are much better quality. I have had many problems using the cheaper brands. (See picture below) If the wheel bearing and sensor is OK, then the harness should be replaced. You will have to scan your Antilock Brake System (ABS) module to find out which one is causing the light to come on. As far as cost...it depends on exacltly WHAT it needs and WHO is doing the job. There also may be more than one speed sensor giving you problems. Your best bet is to get it diagnosed and get an estimate of repairs. If they try to sell you a hub assembly, ASK them if they actually TESTED the speed sensor. MOST mechanics out there will just throw a speed sensor (hub assembly) at the problem if they have a speed sensor code, only to find out later that the problem is in the harness. Of course, the customer is the one who ends up paying for their incompetence when this happens. dttech_36.jpg

Applied brakes pulsate. front pads and rotors are good. rear brake pads are fair and rotors


If ABS is activating for no apparent reason then the most common causes are failed ABS wheel sensors or more commonly, cracked reluctor rings.

You won't usually see the crack in a reluctor ring, but it opens up when it rotates at running speeds. You can also get it to show with a simple fluorescent dye crack testing kit (not cheap to buy for a one-off job, but any decent garage or engineering workshop will have a kit to hand).

Unfortunately, reluctor rings are expensive as they usually come as an integral part of the driveshaft or hub assembly. Third party versions may be available and are less expensive (still a painful price though) but to fit them they must be heated until cherry red and then dropped into position. Get it wrong and you have to cut off your new and expensive ring and start again. Not really a DIY job unless you're very confident and experienced.

If the crack test proves negative, then ABS sensors are easy to fit and can be tested by swapping around to see if you can move the fault from one wheel to another or even from the front to the rear. Sensors are relatively cheap, but failures are far less common than with reluctor rings.

Fingers crossed for you that it's the easy/cheap fix.

Car won"t shift from second to third gear


Yes your car is in limp mode, but it's not necessarily an expensive problem.

The problem is usually caused by either a failed input speed sensor (35.00 retail) or output speed sensor (about $50.00 retail). If your speedometer isn't working it's the output speed sensor.

Either one takes just a few minutes to change but of course you'll get charged for an hour's labor. Good luck.
