If you give me the actual code that will help. There is a speed sensor mounted in the differential that the transmission uses, but there are also more then one speed sensor on the transmission. On your vehicle there are 3 speed sensors on the transmission.
Knowing the actual code will let me tell you which direction to head.
There are over 200 possible diagnostic trouble codes for that vehilce. Do we really want to guess what the code is?
I am looking for a 4 digit code with a letter in front. The codes will read like P0301, P0758, something along those lines.
P03xx codes are always misfire codes and will have nothing to do with speed sensors.
Remember the more accurate the information is that I get, the more likely that we will fix your truck.
Why would you replace every sensor on the transmission? If you hae a NON-Transmission code you will just be throwing your money in the garbage can. Before you throw any part at the vehicle, just get me the code. The transmission can be shifting harsh, because of an engine sensor or a misfire. If the engine control computer detectes a fault in any system, it will crank up the transmission shift pressures to protect the transmission.
And what happens if the code that you have is a "torque converter excessive slippage" code? Do you really want to spend several hundred dollars on a bunch of sensors that will not fix your problem?
Please, PLEASE do NOT just throw parts at a vehicle. I cannot stress this enough. Get me the code and lets fix the vehicle correctly. A couple of more hours will not hurt either of us and will save you much money.
Like I said, when you are ready. I am not in a hurry, and even if you send me the information to me when I am not online, no one else will get involved in the question.
As soon as I log back in, the question will be brought to my attention.
Either way will work. But I don't have a problem with waiting for you to accept later.
I don't know if you understand. I know what the codes are for the speed sensors. I need to know what the codes were that your truck is throwing out.
Is the computer outputting the P0500 or the P0503? We really need specific information here.
However, both the P0500 and the P0503 refer to intermitant loss of VSS signal. That sensor is the one in the rear axle housing.
You did not take up a lot of my time and besides: That is why I am here.
