1992 Chevrolet Lumina Question: Speed Sensor

 

Question

I believe I need a replacement speed sensor on my 92 chevy lumina 3.1L V6 sedan. The needle on the speedometer jumps. Can someone tell me exactly where this sensor is exactly on the car? Any links to a visual diagram would be useful if you happen to know a website. Any info is appreciated.

    The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is in the rear of the engine compartment on the transmission. The housing that contains the VSS has a dark green wire going to it. Labor guide shows it takes a little over an hour to change the sender. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_infoThere is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
