Your problem is the speed sensor. The VSS (vehicle speed sensor)
is located on the right side of the transaxle, near where the right side axle shaft
connects to. To access this part is pretty tricky, if you are inexperienced. There
is an aluminum foil covered shield around the wiring connector. You will need to
remove the shield to gain access. You may even have a damaged wiring
connector, that is causing the problem due to the close proximity of this part to
the catalytic converter. If you want to purchase this part from the Ford dealer,
ask the parts counter person for the "basic" part number 9E731. Hope this helps.

Hi, make sure you check the speed cable that runs to the engine, it may be severed. As for the tranny, you have some major gear problems that will require pulling this transmission for a deeper look. i would have a look at the transmission filter as well.

Still sounds like a bad output speed sensor - check scan the TCM for codes and see what you get. Also check the wiring at and near the output speed sensor connector.
