Location of the input and output sensor. A bit confused. I bought both input and output sensor from Autozone. I did replace the output sensor and the hard shifting went away but still speedometer acting up.
Do you
have the same problem?

The speed sensor is on the transmission near the passenger side axle shaft output. Here is a diagram (below) with red arrows showing its location Please let us know what happens. (BELOW)
The input sensor is behind the side cover of the transmission.
Attached below are the instructions and diagrams of how to replace it
Let us know if you need anything else

Vehicle speed sensor is located on the right rear of the engine compartment, end of the trans-axle. Post your engine size (3.4L, 3.8L etc. ) And I will be able to provide a diagram.

You need to go through the right front tire and wheel.

The part number does not mean anything to us. What sensor are you looking for?

After looking at your title it looks like you are looking for the vehicle speed sensor. This picture is for the 3.8 engine since you did not supply an engine size.
