Have the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) checked and replaced if bad.

Let me know what you find.

I was wondering where the VSS is located on the transmission? It appears the wire from the VSS goes up to to PCM. A friend said it is a little easier to take the pasanger side wheel off before starting to remove the VSS. It's a $25 part and I want to change it out and any help you can give would be much appreciated, thanks, greasymike
