I don't think you reach the VSS easily from the top on a V8 SHO..can you? Because theres like no room anywhere in that engine compartment for anything lol. My SHO has an oil leak but my mencanic says its not worth it because you would have to rip a lot of stuff out too get to it..and its like a drip or 2 a day anyways...anywho, how could I get to VSS on a V* SHO?

lol it was easy on a vulcan

but id say your best bet would probably be to drop the exhaust and work it from underneath. just 1 bolt holding it in, and dont shear it like I did.... its a real pain in the ass

I thought the V8 SHOs got their speed info from the ABS sensor.

Yes the V8 SHO has no VSS. It is all ABS.

You have an AX4S. This might help:

Thanks so much, it is an AX4S. Saying that link might help was quite an understatement. It made it into a 10 minute part swap, instead of an all day hunt for the VSS. The Haynes manual is wrong as it says to jack up the car and pull it from underneath. For anyone else doing this it is an easy job through the hood:


1- reach in with the left hand while standing at the right fender. Feel for the VSS just below the #2 cylinder. It is on TOP of the transmission. You may need to pull back a heat shield.
2- Pull of the electrical connector. Remove the 10mm bolt with a box / open end combo wrench.
3- The VSS pulls straight out toward the driver's side.
4- The new VSS pushes straight in toward the passenger side. Bolt it. Plug it. Drive it.

thanks for the info and pics, but for some reason I STILL can't find the VSS on my 99 Sable DOHC. I studied the pics carefully and went all over the area near the passenger side half-shaft on over to below Cylinder #2, but can't feel or see anything on top of the transmission that looks remotely like a VSS.

There is a sensor in a different place, mounted vertically but not on the transmission itself, but that doesn't seem to add up with what I'm reading here.

I'd rate my abilities as at least intermediate, and sadly spend well over 45 minutes looking and feeling for the stupid thing. Is it possible there's some kind of variation on where they put these things? Has anyone else run into this as well?

I'd venture to guess it's this thing:

Thank you!

That's what I suspected, but was thrown a bit by the description of it being right under Cylinder #2. This job shouldn't be bad at all.

Thanks again for your help... I like your picture. You wouldn't happen to have more posted around somewhere would you?

What picture? The one of the engine? That's just a picture I saved. Someone posted that a long time ago.
