If it has RWAL only, the sensor is in the rear end. If it is ABS brakes, there are speed sensors on the front wheels as well. If there is in fact a speed sensor in the tranny, it is most likely internal.

Disconect your fuel rail then one at a time just pull out and push in the new fuel injectors.

Ac use to work fine up until now. I don't know if its a fuse or what. Where is the ac fuse located at, in a 97 crown vick

When you say the ac is not working, do you mean the blower or the compressor is not engaging. If the compressor is not engaging, the system is low on refrigerant and needs to be checked for leaks and recharged. If the blower is not working, it will most likely be the resistors in the multiple speed switch.
