The VSS is located on the output shaft housing of the transmission on the passenger's side of the vehicle. You can see it by either going down behind the engine to the top of the transmission housing on the passenger's side(an inspection mirror might help). You can also raise the vehicle, pull the right front wheel, and you may be able to see it somewhat at that point.

Had the same problem off and on in my 1999 Taurus. The speedometer needs to be replaced. The problem is in the speedometer and not the transmission like I was initially led to believe.
