Shift Solenoid maybe? Usually in the pan area. This requires dropping the tranny pan underneath and changing the fluid, filter, gasket, and solenoid(s). Prices for solenoids are cheaper online than in the parts stores. I'm not familiar with a shift sensor, but maybe I don't know about it. :)

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

The knock sensor fault may be preventing the transmission from shifting to OD. The main engine computer also sends commands to the transmission computer. Your transmission valve body is controlled by electronics.

My tranmission was shifting hard and trying to run hot so i changed filter and fluid.now its not doin that it slipping and stalls at low rpm's.is that my torque converter or sensors bad?


You may need the transmission rebuilt, once it starts to slip that is the end in mist cases. Have a local transmission repair shop confirm my guess on this

Cant find where speed sensor is located on tranmission to change it out for the new one i have already got


HI the speed sensor is located on the front of the transmission. You will need to remove the air cleaner houseing to get access. The sensor will be to the right and under the shift linkage. I hope this helps happy hunting.
