    • Q:

      I have a 1996 Chevy Lumina APV. It runs great locally. However, on a highway, it jerks on 4th gear. I would have to lay off on the gas pedal slightly in order to run smoothly. Would this part fix my problem? I also have a P1870 code, I don't know if that is relevant to my problem or would the speed sensor fix it all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

        A:

        I'm happy to help, Djshorty! It's probably not. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) slip by calculating the difference between the engine speed and the transmission output shaft speed. When the PCM detects an excessive amount of slip when the TCC is engaged, then DTC P1870 sets. However, without the presence of your vehicle I would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

        A:

        Hi Landc_us, glad to help you! The vehicle speed sensor should be located on the front passenger side of the car. Loosen the nuts on the wheel, then jack it up. remove the wheel. As you look where the wheel was, to your left is the speed sensor. It is at an angle, angled towards the back of the car. first unhook the wires attached. you can do this by hand. next, remove the bolt that is holding the speed sensor on. I believe it is a 10mm, and you will need a deep socket. once you remove the bolt, the sensor slides right out. Also, make sure you replace the "O" ring on the sensor. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts. The exact repair manual part number for your vehicle is 38010.

        A:

        The vehicle speed sensor or even the transmission control solenoid may be the problem. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

    • Q:

      if this sensor is bad will it cause the rpms to idle high at start up or during operation?

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Defective vehicle speed sensors may cause improper torque converter clutch lockup as well as a cruise control malfunctions. A bad VSS can also cause inaccurate speedometer operation. It is better to have the vehicle hoisted up on a lift so that the drive wheels can spin freely when you attempt to diagnose vehicle speed sensor problems.

    • Q:

      will a bad sensor cause it not to shift into drive or reverse
      Asked on 2/10/2011 by chon from south denver

      1 answer

      • A:

        A bad VSS will cause the transmission/transaxle to shift erratically in and out of gear and cause the speedometer to read zero. You will be able to shift between drive and reverse, but your travel will be limited to first gear. Before replacing, check the wiring as well to the sensor. In a 1993 Cadillac Deville for example, the wiring sits close to the exhaust and therefore has been known to melt the wiring over time causing a short. Also check the sensor itself for any metal shavings that may be present on the magnet. Sometimes just cleaning it will do the trick.
