Exclamation Transmission Speed Sensor

2008 Taurus SEL


I've heard mine is a common problem:


After stopping, starting, or slowing down the transmission remains in high gear, possibly overdrive which makes it difficult to drive the car up the slightest incline.


Scanner came up reading the problem is the Speed Sensor that is inside the transmission so I had it replaced ($$$$).


The car drove pretty good for 50 miles+- then after starting one morning and driving 1/4 mile I noticed the gear was stuck in high once again. Scanner showed no codes. Drove home, let it sit for a while then tried driving the car and everything seemed fine.


I decided to do a little homework then cleaned the throttle and MASS Air Sensor. The car drives good now - but I don't know if the cleaning(s) I did helped or not.


Anyone shed light on this problem?
