Speed sensor and metal shavings 99 24 valve OHC
My 99 Taurus with 24 valve overhead cam was acting strange with the trany not shifting, speedometer failing, stumbling into gear at start and warning light for O/D OFF came on and off, one time it got stuck in a low gear. turning car on and off seemed to be a quick fix.
I bought a speed sensor from the junk yard and switched them. The one I took out had metal shavings on it. It is magnetic right?
All was working fine for 2000 miles or so, just saw the O/D OFF warning light and it stumbled at start a couple of times now.
Metal shavings cant be good.
Think the trany is ready to let go?
Is there any preventive action I could do?
