        Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Transmission Output Speed Sensor:

        I have a 2001 PT Cruiser with over 250,000 miles on it. I have had to do other DIY transmission work on this car. A year ago I drained the transmission fluid and changed the filter. At that time the car had a faulty TCM (Transmission Control Module). The symptom's this time were different. As before the car was going into limp mode (Not shifting into 2nd gear). Although the codes that came up with the code reader this time were P0700, P0720 and P0731. Clearing the codes before fixing would only allow me to drive (starting and stopping) 5-10 times before the codes would come up again and the car would return to limp mode. Kind of hard to drive around without coming to a complete stop and the car shifting into 1st gear. The car would jump or lurch from first gear to second gear. After installing this the car again shifts smoothly.

        2000 Breeze 2.4 DOHC trans speed sensor

          Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Transmission Output Speed Sensor:

          2000 Plymouth Breeze 2.4L DOHC, mileage at time of malfunction was 106,973 miles, 12 years old. Symptoms of malfunction were no speedometer indication, transmission would not shift out of second gear, and check engine light illuminated. On board diagnstic (OBD) code was speed sensor malfunctioning and transmission not receiving inputs. The Breeze is the same as the Dodge Stratus and Chrysler Cirrus. On the Breeze 2.4L the sensor is very easy to get to, located behind the easy to remove front driver's side inner wheel well battery access panel. This panel is forward of the wheel well(is actually a part of the wheel well) and gives access to the battery and lower front side of the transmission. No need to remove tire, simply turn steering wheel all the way to the left. Turn each of the approx. 4-5 fasteners 1/4 turn counterclockwise and then work the panel out by bending, it's very flexible. Looking from the side the sensor is easy to spot protruding from the front of the transmission with a connector plug attached. Lift on the connector tab and the plug simply pulls off. You'll need either a 1 inch SAE deepwell socket, 1 inch wrench, or crescent wrench. I had loaned out my 1 inch SAE deep well socket so I used an adjustable 10 inch crescent wrench to break it loose. Careful, the sensor is partially hard plastic but seems pretty tough. It then turned out easily by hand. This sensor is magnetic like an oil pan drain plug so its common for them to have metal shavings on them. I cleaned mine up and for kicks put it back in to see if that would fix it but it didn't. Screwed new one in by hand, snugged with wrench, and replaced connector. While you're in there might as well check out your battery and conections located forward of the wheel. My battery was 8 years old and not giving any problems but I went ahead and changed it out anyway. Sice I was swapping out the battery I went ahead and removed the front left tire to make it easier, not needed but gives my back a break from twisting at an angle removing/installing the battery. Don't forget to erase the check engine light through the OBD. It's been 3 months and the car is still running fine, speedometer working, no light, and shifts great. Overall job as I described including battery swapout was about 30-40 minutes taking your time with parts/tools on hand. Have had this car since it was brand new and this is the first time this sensor has failed.

              Yup that was it. It even has a piece gnarled off the end that I hope won't get in the tranny and screw it up. The major abrupt shifting is solved and am very happy no tranny specialist had to get involved. Gotta get the code reset and thats it.

                  My transmission wouldn't shift out of 1st gear. Got a quote to rebuild the trany. No trouble light. Found others on the internet with the same problem and they fixed it by replacing the speed sensor in the trany. So for a very small investment and 5 min worth of work I fixed it my self.

                      Hi Mopar, glad to assist you! The output speed sensor should be located on the tailshaft of the transmission. 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.
