          Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Transmission Output Sensor / Vehicle Speed Sensor:

          There is a small gear that fits on the end of this sensor, it is normally worn and most parts clerks have no idea it has to be replaced or removed from the shaft and put on the new one, there is a small clip that retains the gear and the clip nor gear is available to the customer to be replaced, in fact like me It appeared to be the wrong part without the gear and cost a lot of time and effort to figure this out.

              A:

              Hi Todd! Upon research, this 1998 Ford Taurus does not list a manual transmission, therefore, there would not be a clutch pedal.

              A:

              Hi Russ! I have forwarded the location image of the vehicle speed sensor to your email address. Some vehicles had a cable to the cruise control unit, while others controlled it electronically. You need to check your specific vehicle.

          • Q:

            I have a 1990 Ford F150 4x4 with automatic transmission and 351w (5.8L) engine. This speed sensor (i.e. BWD S8063) mounts to my 4x4 transfer case right behind the transmission. I am experiencing engine shudder at speeds above 35 mph. Can this part cause this problem?

              A:

              HI Zodi, glad to serve you! Symptoms of a bad speed sensor: Speed Controls: 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. Transmission: Hesitation, roughness or sporadic jumps in your vehicle's transmission when you try to shift gears indicates your speed sensor may be the problem. Other Signs: Your vehicle may rumble or idle irregularly when you start it, or it may burn more fuel than normal. Also, your vehicle 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 have a 1989 ford ranger 4x4 2.9 five speed. I have been having a problem when it runs for a trip over 30 miles it starts to chug, espc. in 1st 2nd and 3rd. if I run it even longer it will not start after I shut it off. but If I let it set for 1-2 hrs it will start back up but still chugs. I also have a ticking which I think is the valve lifter or the rocker arm. Parts I have replaced: The fuel filter, air filter, oil filter, changed the oil, (Tune up) spark plugs, distributor, rotor button, wires, Valve cover gaskets, Brakes front&back, Rotors, Ball joints, tie rods.

              A:

              The vehicle speed sensor and or even the transmission control solenoid may be the possible cause of the problem on your Ford Taurus. 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.

              you can find out by finding your EEC IV connector located in the engine compartment with the fuses.

            • A:

              If your cruise control works then this part is working. This is the only thing that tells the cruise what speed your car is going. There is another problem causing your overdrive not to function.

              Yes, this could cause transmission shifting problems. The vehicle speed sensor is usually located at the rear of the transmission output shaft area.

              Most likely it is a sensor for the engine. Like a crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, MAF, MAP, throttle position sensor, etc...
