The likely cause(s) could be a bad speed sensor or speed cable. You may also check for damage wiring as well.

Good Luck

I have a 2001 dodge grandcaravan and it started surging while driving and the transmission wouldnt shift into drive or overdrive. So I had it put on a computer and the code for the output speed sensor...


I never change a PCV Valve. Wash them out,and move on, to the next thing on your list. The PCV regulates air flow,from your engines crankcase,to induction,to prevent pressure build up and remove and burn blowby gases Etc.
Why would you change the speed sensor,just because you got a code. The code is the symptom,not always the causes of the issues or problems.
You have driveability issues with the engine. Work on that first, e.g.--surging
Then go to trans issues,such as solenoid valve body.
You need professional help here. Too high tech and too much to know, to fix in your driveway.

Speedometer and Tachometer


It could have a short behind the dash where you pushed the tripometer. Check all your fuses and you will find one for your gauges thats bad replace if and see if it works, Hope so Take care
