1998 Taurus 3.0L 4V DOHC engine 92K miles
Check engine light came on and Autozone read code. They indicated speed sensor is bad. Can not detect any common symptoms from a bad speed sensor. Speedometer is working, transmission shifts are smooth and lock-up torque conv is engaging. No black smoke from exhaust or engine pinging. Did not check anti-lock brakes.
Not sure where to check next. A quick review of some other Taurus/speed sensor posts indicates it is another "fun" job.
I have the Ford 1997 Taurus service manual (about 3" thick) but, hasn't been much help yet.
PS: Recently had alternator replaced. What a "fun" job that was! Can't see where something from that repair could have caused this, but light came on one day after repair completed.
have the same problem?
