Question about 1992 Oldsmobile 88
Its not your crank sensor the problem is more then likely in your tranny your tranny needs some attention

This is an electronic speedometer, nothing is user repairable, the circuit board fails and you get your problem, you will have to pull the speedo and send it out to an authorized GM repair station, they are all over the country, one company that does this is called SPEEDOTACH, LOOK THEM UP ON THE INTERNET.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, check the wiring/connectors to the speed sensor. The speed sensor is at the transmission would look like the image below.
Incidentally, the speed sensor not only sends signal to the speedometer, is signals are also used by the engine computer and the transmission control. This would partly explain all the other concerns.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

Hey, The problem is NOT a crankshaft sensor or a TPS sensor. It is most likely the distributor. If it is not givin you a check engine light or shooting a code then its is your distributor. This just happened to my 2000.. how many miles you got on it, you like it? I got it 2 weeks ago, then on the highway it seemed to lose the response from the accel. But it would sometime drop back into gear and I could drive for another 20 second and then it was dead. So let me know if this helps....

It sounds like your low on fluid, or your transmission filter is dirty and the front pump is not getting enough oil supply. Worst is your front pump is going bad.
Check the fluid level and see if it's burnt. Good luck
