SOURCE: 99 Mercury sable speedo/tranny

VSS (vehicle speed sensor) Tells the PCM (computer) the speed of the vehicle so the PCM can make the proper information to the TCM (transmission control module) to shift.
YOU are goin gto need a scan tool NOt a code reader to monitor the VSS to see what it is putting out for speed when the car is moving But I believe you need a VSS but do not not Go out and buy one until you have had it tested , and can positively confrim it is bad first. Please rate this a fixya if you find this advice helpful, Thanks Randy

got me racking my one ameoba brain cell this one,and i cant think of anything that i have had like this sort of problem,except once with an old petrol commer truck many years ago,and the problem here was the inlet maniifold was loose.Now as this is obviously an auto then when the engine "kicks " as its dropped into gear then something is causing it to cut out .Now i suggest you check manifold nuts are tight first.Then check all the wiring connectors onto the sensors on the engine ,pulling the rubber covers back and checking the wires are connected and none broken or and undue bending that could have broken the copper inside the insulation.Then check the actual connectors themselves ,ensuring they are not broken or burnt.If you cant find anything then call out your local mobile mechanic as he will no doubt have a plug in tester and when engine cuts out it should show a fault??But if it is one of these sensors then iam at a loose end as to what one would cause this sort of fault because when i was at college we were still taught how to white metal and scrape the big end and crank bearings.Not to walk around with white coats and plastic pervert gloves and all looking like bill gates type nerds who can only talk about gigas and OBDII also wouldnt dream of changing a clutch on a big truck on the side of the road with only a trolley jack and a couple of pieces of 4x4 and a chain.Let alone sort out the truck driver and give him a right hander for burning the clutch out in the first place.

Transmission shifting funny could it be the TPS 2000 mercury cougar


The throttle position sensor wouldn't have a big effect on a transmission. It would make the car die or idle weird. I would do a simple flush and new tranny filter. I'm sure that would take care of it unless you have a component slipping in the transmission.

I was driving approx.60mph,when my speedometer stop working and the trans.seem to shift into second gear,I believe it to be a speed sensor problem. I do not know the location of it though.


You probably have a blown fuse that conrols the speedometer and shift point of the transmission; Check the fuses inside the car under the dash on the driver side. The speedometer tells the transmission when to shift.

If the tranny is jerking and jumping try giving it a complete wires new plugs and change the throttle position sensor which is probably the culprit as they go alot in these cars.

NO OVERDRIVE


I had a similar problem with my 98 mystique when i bought it used. I had no overdrive and was lucky to find a honest transmission shop that found the problem. In my case the overdrive was unplugged. They plugged it back in,cleared the computer and changed my tranny fluid and i was good to go. You should be revving about 2400rpm at 65mph. The other thing you can check is to make sure that the wires that go from the overdrive button are not broken off or coroded.
