    What whole unit? You replace the VSS Sensor (speed sensor) only if it failed

    Thank you, pczapp. We asked this for my father-in-law. Also, do you know where I can find service manual type instructions online for doing this work?

Your best bet is to go to a transmission repair shop.
The sensor should be on the outside of the transmission case
Again,don't replace anything based on my guess,have things tested first
