It's likely the vehicle speed sensor on the tranny. go to autozone buy a new one. Shouldn't be to hard to install. (probably the same as a ford taurus?) google or forums for proceedure.

Is it a 12 valve engine or 24 valve? What do you mean by speedometer sensor? Do you mean Vehicle speed sensor? If so why do you want to change that?

A 1997 Mercury Sable came stock with size p205/65r15 tires. Taller or shorter tires will cause the speedometer to read incorrectly.

Check VSS(vehicle speed sensor)on tranny,the most common problem of speedometer errs,providing your vehicle is equipped with a speedometer cable.Also,VSS,will cause erratic speedometer reads. - Big Daddy

The speedometer is driven by the vehicle speed sensor. See "Related Questions" below for more about where to find it, and how to replace one.
