I would expect to find it in the tail shaft just like the speedometer cables were.It should be pretty obvious.

The oxygen sensor is located in the flow of exhaust and there will be two. the first is at the exit of the exhaust manifold where the head pipe attaches before the converter and the other is just after the cat converter.

SOURCE: location of crankshaft sensor on a 98 chevy s10

It is located on the passenger side of the engine block just under the ignition module you can see it from underside. The easiest way to see it and access it is to jack up the passenger side front wheel and take the wheel off there is a rubber flap in the wheel well you can push out of your way. I am warning you be very careful removing it mostly made of plastic I broke one off leaving most of the sensor in the engine block had to drill the rest of it out which was no fun not alot of room for you to work. Get yourself a bottle of PB Blaster and keep spraying it as your pulling out before you try pulling out the sensor try to get it free enough that you can spin it around. Hope this helps good luck it fits pretty tight!

Hi, it is likely your speed sensor has failed or the wiring is broken. The speed sensor is mounted near the rear of the transmission and has 2 wires attached. Check to see if the wires got pulled. If the wires look good, you can test the sensor if you have some jack stands to put under the back wheels. Make sure the transfer case is set to 2WD. Test procedures are pasted below. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

OPERATION

The vehicle speed sensor is made up of a coil mounted on the transmission and a tooth rotor mounted to the output shaft of the transmission. As each tooth nears the coil, the coil produces an AC voltage pulse. As the vehicle speed increases the number of voltage pulses per second increases.
TESTING

See Figure 1


jturcotte_2211.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and vehicle speed signal buffer wiring diagram

  1. To test the VSS, backprobe the VSS terminals with a high impedance voltmeter (set at the AC voltage scale).
  2. Safely raise and support the entire vehicle using jackstands. Make absolutely sure the vehicle is stable.
  3. Start the vehicle and place it in gear.
  4. Verify that the VSS voltage increases as the drive shaft speed increases.
  5. If the VSS voltage is not as specified the VSS may be faulty.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 2
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the electrical connection.
  3. Unfasten the sensor retainers.
  4. Remove the sensor and gasket or O-ring.

To install:
  1. Install the sensor with a new gasket or O-ring.
  2. Fasten the sensor retainers.
  3. Engage the electrical connections.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hi, I'm not familiar with the part, but the diagram shows it behind the glove box next to the ECM. Go in thru the bottom--remove the sound barrier, remove the EMC, then remove the buffer. What I recommend is to see if you can get one at a salvage yard. Otherwise, they are about $50 on eBay. Thanks for using FixYa.

Speedo wont go past 55 truck runs fine


Hi
The transmission and speedo COULD be the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) and or related wires. The Tach is a seperate circuit that gets signal from Distributor and power is fed through the "Gauges" fuse. The only way I see them being a related concern is either The ground (G200) and is located Behind the left side of the IP, below the fuse block, on the tie bar. the other way would be the IP cluster itself.
I think you MAY have 2 issues. I would get the VSS checked and make sure your getting a signal to the VSS buffer (located next to the PCM, around the glove box area). Make sure the buffer is sending the signal out. A Scan tool SHOULD be able to assist you in this. If there is NO VSS signal the transmission will not shift properly, if at all.
Also your speedo will drop off with no VSS.
As stated, this is just advise from experience and published material.
If in doubt, please take it to a Repair shop in your area your familiar with.

A faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) or related wiring can cause both of your problems, trans and ABS. If the computer doesn't know the vehicle is moving, then it won't shift the trans. If the ABS controller sees wheel speed, but not vehicle speed, it will turn on the ABS light. The VSS is located in the rear transfer case housing. But remember, it may be the VSS, related wiring, a faulty speedo buffer (usually located in the dashboard), ECM, or even the reluctor on the transfer case output shaft. You may want to have a shop scan "data stream", or even have them diagnose the problem.
