Probably the speed sensor on the tranny, but may be the gears inside. The part is only $20 and a quick do it yourself, so I recommend replacing it to see if that does it. If not, you're into the tranny to fix little nylon gears, etc. Please let me know if you have questions.

95' Mercury Sable 3.0w/overdrive auto trans when car reaches operating temp trans will shift fine until it shifts for third or o/d then completely disengages will not reengage until car slows and down...


Sounds like a shift solenoid problem. If you have any codes associated with solenoid failure, that is probably what it is. If there are no codes, it is probably something stuck in the valve body or something else mechanical.

The sped ometer and odometer has quit,now i notice sometimes the transmission does not shift from first without stopping placing it in park. Turn off switch and start over and it will down shift at times


depending on the model and year there are so many sensors and solenoids on the trans and engine that it is going to be hard to fix without a scan tool.......but if this started at the same time the odometer and the speedo quit working i would be looking at the speed sensor in the trans and then the speed sensor that is made in the speedo head that both can make the speedo head and the odometer not work......i hope that this info will help you and if ican be of any other help let me know.......let me and fixya know if this was any help to you and a thumbs up would be appreciated.....good luck and have a blessed day............

My transmision slips and the speedo quits working at the same time in my 1998 mercury sable


Hello wsarah03,

There is a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) mounted on the transaxle, that is a good place to start. The VSS tells the powertrain management system when and how to shift the transmission and also gives the speedometer it's signal.

From your description that the speedometer quit working at the same time I would suspect the a faulty VSS.

netvan

After rebuilding a transmission on 96 mercury sable, car still will down shift to low from drive. Speed odemeter quit working and cruise quit working. Any ideas


Have you tried replacing the speed sensor? Also is your car a column shift or floor shifter? If it is a column shifter make sure to inspect your linkage between the shifter and the tranny.

The transmission is should be controlled by the tcm "transmission control module". The first item to check would be a good visual inspection. If all seems in the norm, then the fluid condition and level. You have to check the transmission level when the car is running at operating temp and in park. If that is ok, the next item would be to have the code read. Autozone will scan your car for free. Once you have a code, it may give a hint as to what system is acting up. That is where I would start.

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
