replace the input and output transmission speed sensors, they run about $20 a piece you will need a 1" deepwell socket to easily replace these. It took me about 45min or so without deepwell sockets but would have taken about 20min with them.

Two questions: Is your odometer working? If not then it's probably a broken gear by the stepper motor that Emissionwiz mentioned. Is your ABS and/or TRACS light on intermittently or constantly. If so that is a common sign your ABS control module has gone or is going bad. This usually happens before the speedometer starts acting up. Either one of these will start intermittently and finally end up with the speedometer not functioning at all, and both are pretty common failures with this model.

The Vehicle Speed Sensor located on the Transmission is malfunctioning or the connection is malfunctioning.
It is very easily removed and replaced.
The Vehicle Speed Sensor sends vital information for the Transmission to properly Shift. Because yours is malfunctioning, this lack of information is causing shifting problems.
I do not know if you have a Mechanical or Electrical (Gauges or Digital) Instrument Display. I also do not know if you have a 17 or 19 bolt transmission pan, nor what type of transmission you have (AX4N or AX4S) Nor if you have a Speedometer Cable (Mechanical Instrument will have Gauges=Cable).
The best thing to do is to check the connections of the Vehicle Speed Sensor. Unplug and check both sides of the connection for corrosion/oxidation. You can also take this sensor out of the transmission and clean the interior end; reinstall and recheck operation.
If this does not fix the problem, then remove and replace this snsor.
Take the Sensor with you to the auto parts store to compare the part you receive. You should know what tansmission you have and the number of bolts on the transmission pan, and whether you have an Electronic (Digital) Instrument Panel or Mechanical (Gauges) Instrument Panel on your dash.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
