AnswerThe Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) could also be what is being asked about here.

See "Related Questions" below for more about the VSS

AnswerMost newer vehicles include a wheel speed sensor on each wheel that is used to tell when one or more wheel is slipping. The information is used by the ABS system and by the anti-slip feature if present.

The speed sensors are also used as a part of the cruise control system.

Many people seem to believe that there is a governor attached to the speed sensors. There is no evidence that a governor exists on any Ford or GM product.

On a 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7, the temperature sensor is located below the air intake. The sensor should be accessible without having to remove any other parts.
