It is called the "vehical speed sensor". If i remember correctly it about $35 dollars at rhe parts store. This sensor will make your car not shift out of first or hold out first a lot longer, and at times you may not have a speedo. It is located on the tranny directly below the intake manifold. This is a hard one. I crawled on top of my car and laid the side of my face on the maniflold. please do this when its cold. Arms on both sides till you find this thing sticking out at a 45 degree angle pointing twards the driver seat. Its only one bolt 10mm, I think. finding where that bolt goes back without being able to see it is the hard part. Good luck 20 minutes for me.
