Well beings it is an older car it's probably not gonna have wheel speed sensors so the only way your car is gonna know how fast it's going is the speed of the transmission... the sensor is probably mounted on the bell housing.

BetterThe speed sensor is actually connected to the speedometer cable, that's why its a two piece cable. Look under the hood right under the master cylinder its a round thing inline with the speedo cable. Good Luck, it's kind of difficult to change. Chris :)


The speed sensor is not in the speedometer cable. It is screwed to the back of the speedometer. It's a small light, like an LED, that shines onto a rotating piece and puts out a two pulse per rev signal.
