  • Q:

    Have a 2004 Cavilier that the trac off light comes on and the RPMs go up, up, and up. This weekend it did it and shut itself off. No other lights are coming on. First time this light came on the prms went way up, I shut it off and back on and everything was fine for a few days. Is it this speed sensor?

      A:

      Hi Dawn, glad to help! The most noticeable sign of a bad speed sensor is a speedometer or odometer that stops working. Also, you may not be able to set your vehicle to cruise control. Hesitation, roughness or sporadic jumps in your vehicle's transmission when you try to shift gears indicates your speed sensor may be the problem. Your vehicle may rumble or idle irregularly when you start it, or it may burn more fuel than normal and also may lose power suddenly due to wrong signals sent from the speed sensor to the fuel system. I would suggest that you to take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

  • Q:

    I replaced this on my vehicle approx. two weeks ago because my speedometer was constantly increasing and decreasing during driving. It would also "miss out" and try to die when the speed dropped below a certain number. It done fine for a while, now it is doing the exact same thing again. My check engine light has never came on as of yet. Do you have any idea as to what could be causing this to happen?

  • Q:

    This says it is for a 4 speed automatic, this car has a 6 speed. Is this an issue?

    I also bought one last week and it cost me almost 50% less! Why?

      A:

      The vehicle speed sensor on your 2004 chevy malibu should be located on the transmission final drive housing. This is the end of the transmission that the passenger side axle comes out of. It has a 2 wire connector on it, accessed from under the car.
