I have a 1993 ford taurus 3.8L V6 automatic GL. Can you tell me where the “vehicle speed sensor” is located on my car?
Here is the location of the VSS. It looks easy in the picture but it is not. It is mounted in the top of the transaxle just inboard of the right axle. It is covered with a heat shield because it is directly below the rear exhaust pipe. The manual recommends removal of the Y pipe to change the sensor. It can be done with out doing this but you must do it by feel and you will end up bleeding.
I’ve never had a 3.8 Taurusable with a bad VSS. Is the one on the 3.8 that much different that the 3.0? The 3.0s, while not easily accessible, can be done in 10 or 15 minutes. I do them from the top, almost laying on the engine. Use cardboard to protect yourself from heat and sharp areas.
