Is your speedo jumping around or not working. If it is a 2000 windstar there is no speed sensor in the transmission. the sensor that is in the transmission is for the computer now out put speed for shifting the transmission. for speedo problems look at the driveshafts see the abs rings are broken if so replace shaft this is were the speed is checked and sent to your dash. Note - if you remove the broken ring and not replace the shaft your speedo will be out by half doing 50 Km = 100 Km

Speed sensor

The sensor should be in the side of the transmission.
The speedo would stop working, or you would have shifting troubles with the transmission. And you would have a check engine light on with a trouble code for the sensor.

Location of transmission sencor??

The input an output speed sensors are located in the front of the transmission (the side facing the radiator). The input speed sensor is the one right below the rubber transmission cooler lines. the out put speed sensor looks exactly the same and is located more toward the drivers side of the transmission.

If you looking for a different sensor let me know. Thank you for using!

hi , their is two different speed sensors on your vehicle one is the input speed sensor which is inside the transmission and the transmission will have to be removed to replace it the other one s the output speed sensor is located directly above the passenger side trans-axle shaft. your input sensor is the sensor which tells the transmission when to shift and the output speed sensor tells the speedometer what it should display and both those parts are fairly cheap they are around 15-25 dollars but just remember if your input speed sensor is bad it is gonna cost you a minimum of 1000 dollars to have a mechanic fix as the transmission needs to be removed hope this is what you needed

If you will remove the engine air filter box, the speed sensor should be located directly on top of the transmission and is easily removable.

Does speed control senor make transmission not shift into

If the speed sensor Not work on a Automatic Transmission.
The over drive will not work.
The over drive is a SENSOR Located inside of the Transmission.
On vehicles with 3.0 liters.
On vehicles with 3.3 0r 3.8 liters, Is Part of the selenoid pack.
But if you have a 3.3 or 3.8 Liters.
Most cases the transmission will not go up shifting.
it will Stay on 1st or 3r.

If your van is a 3.0 liter , I will recomend replace the speed sensor.
Located At Right side of the Trans. on the firewall side.

if you have 3.3 or 3.8 liters.
I recomend replace the Input and Output shaft Speed sensor.
Located at left side of the Transmission. Behind the Selenoid Pack.

The first step I recomend Is get the Vehicle scaned with a Diagnostic scan tool.
To know exactly what is the problem.
Is there some autoparts That do scan on vehicles with no charge
Just a Complementary service.
Advance autoparts, Autozone autoparts, Pepboy's Autoparts.
And some Napa Autoparts.

OK. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya....
