ok thanks ......also when I use the ECT on my trans I cant tell any difference, is there anything I can do to change that ?
Expert:  Jason replied 8 years ago.
It just changes the shift points a tiny bit, it was more fluff to sell cars, then anything.

Both the sensors are speed sensors. They are the same from 1998-2002
