I have a '87 GMC Rally STX van, but I think the vehicle speed sensor is similar; The sensor is located just behind the speedometer in the instrument cluster on the dashboard. You access it by removing the instrument panel (carefully). You will need to disconnect the speedometer wire and the electric socket before pulling the instrument cluster out. The vehicle speed sensor is a very simple and reliable component. Not likely to fail. From what you say about the speedometer 'shutting off', I would be inclined to think there is something wrong with the speedometer wire. This component won't last for ever and is probably worn out. Unless your transmission is electronically controlled (don't think the '92 models were), I don't think replacing the speedometer wire will address your transmission problem. I believe that is sorted out within the automatic transmission unit. The TV-cable must be intact and correctly adjusted for the transmission to shift correctly. The TV-cable connects the throttle with the gear-box. Hope this is helpful information.

Suppose that a freely falling object were somehow equipped with a speedometer By how much would its speed reading increase with each second of fall?

If the object is freely falling near the surface of the earth, then the reading on the speedometer is always 9.8 meters per second (32.2 feet per second) higher than it was one second earlier. That number is called the "acceleration of gravity on earth", and your speedometer is a great way to explain it !

Does a car speedometer measure speed?

Yes it does, it measures miles per hour (mph) and kilometers per hour (kph), which is basically your speed. Some cars have speedometers that go up to a higher or lower speed, but don't worry about that. Also there tends to be more kilometers per hour than miles per hour on any given speedometer.
