What you need to do is take off that sensor and have it tested at a local automotive parts supply store. This sensor is the variable speed sensor. If it is bad, get it changed, and when you plug it in it should move.

AnswerIf that connection is to the lock-up torque converter clutch, it may be causing the clutch to stay engaged all of the time. This would cause a direct connection between the engine and the wheels whenever the car was in put into gear. The engine would probably always stall when shifted into gear.

You generally start by dropping both front axles at the transaxle then disconnecting all electrical, hydraulic, control, refrigerant, and fuel lines then disconnecting the motor mounts and hoisting the engine/transaxle assembly out as a unit. From there, you unbolt the bellhousing of the transaxle and split it off. Installation is the reverse. Find a good shop manual and a buddy who has done it before.
