well id sincerely doubt od would work... it sounds to me like you need to have a tranny shop take a look at that bish. you can try resetting the ecu via the screw on the side of it... for more info search

Speed sensor goes to the speedo first then the ECM. It's either the sensor, the wiring, or the speedo. Have you been playing with the dashboard?

Pull the trans fuse for a few mintues and put it back it. I have done that before and working fine after.
