Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
My transmition will not shift out of first gear and the speedometer wont work untill I start and stop a few times and then the speedometer and the transmission start working like they should. Could this be a speed sensor starting to go out.
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.
