Let's have a look at this 2000 Dodge Dakota that has a customer complain of harsh shifting and jerking. It also has the check engine light on and I retrieved a trouble code P0715 Input Speed Sensor Error along with other gear ratio error codes, P0731, P0734 and P1790. Let's focus on this speed sensor and see how it works.

    The Caravan always had wonky sensors. Were prone to stick in low gear.

    Precisely the reason my Dakota has a five speed manual.

    Thanks a bunch man.

    thorough , accurate, nice , never underestimate knowing what your doing….clearly a underestimated trade skill! Just because your comfortable with how stuff sequences does not mean it is not a skill..decade or so in the making …definitely prevailing wage skills, which means not poor but not rich! Comfortable living and retirement in honor that is the scale for your skill level….

    I looked at a number of topics on line but everything is ON AUTMATIC TRANSMISSIONS AND NOTHING ON MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn Folmsbee says:

    The dealership I bought my pickup from told me that I had to replace my transmission so glad I was sceptical and seen your video they was going to charge me for a transmission and make a gigantic profit but thanks to your video I was able to find the sensor and replaced it my truck is fine now thanks again

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Attrill says:

    I have the same issue for years and no one, even dodge where I bought if from had that answer for me and I have booked in for them to do the work but ya same issue out of first and fourth so I believe that your answer will be right. Thanks very much eh

    Why in heaven's name would you have a cable making that noise all the time. People have something wrong with them I swear.

    This is why it is key to have mechanically inclined friends in your life who happen to own scan tools lol.

    I just had a rebuilt transmission put in my 06 Dodge Dakota slt 4×4 and when u come to a stop at the light and start to go the 1st time it shift hard do u think this could be whats causing it to shift hard?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Kreiter says:

    Hi I have 03 Dodge Dakota 4.7 AWD 4×4 had the transmission rebuilt been having issues with hard shifting shop says nothing wrong and won't drop the pan to look could it be bad solenoid pack no codes it shifts up throws u back in ur seat when I let off the gas it gets clunky not sure if this is right place to post questions but running out of options lol

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Jago says:

    When you sneezed I thought it was the vehicle trying to start and the starter was locking up.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Great job again

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BlackiNews says:

    I replaced the same sensor on my 2005 Kia optima and it worked perfectly fine

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell Booth says:

    Yes,the local mechanics in my area would probably replace the transmission !

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hugo Enriquez says:

    I have a 2014 Chevy traverse that shift hard in second and 3rd.. change transmission fluid and still does it.. it only has 114000 miles on it.. can you help.?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Austin Jolley says:

    I drove my toyota for 7 months with a broken heater fan blade. Wasnt broken bad still worked but past level 2 itd start to wobble and it was a constant smacking sound. I thought that was bad. A roof racks not worth that

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bass Jump Blues says:

    I recently was air to a 2001 5.9 Durango, a relative gave me. Worn down and battered. At first, it had a real bad vibration that went away on right hand turns. That was natural to my ears since I know what and how bearings blow out. I bought both sides because that is the way I roll. Then the power steering pump and system started howling. We know what that means. I ordered a new pump and pressure lines. I appreciate men or women that have this in their blood. You, my video friend, are gifted and please believe me. I leave you with gladness in my heart as my new but old dodge / cadilac. Your instruction is clear and to the very point in the matter. I claim victory but not without sharing the credit to a true and honest, without the bullshit. Thank You my friend..

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark s says:

    when it had the hard first shift, was that from going from park to first or first to second?….Thanks for the video

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garth Clark says:

    Most of today's automatic transmission issues are the valve bodies and those solenoids/springs/check balls/valves. Some folks will take their brand new vehicle over to a transmission service center and have a "shift kit" installed to correct the OEM faults that come brand new with vehicles. One brand, TransGo, does the research and offers OEM similar shift patterns yet the valve bodies are getting upgrades so they do not degrade to the point that they damage the other parts of the trans. Even on used cars, a shift kit could be an answer to restore a transmission into a better state so they will last a longer life.
    This is obviously not the case in the video but could be considered something to do one short time in the future. I'd have to say, most shops or 80% of them, wouldn't have spent the time to put the meter on the sensor. One day, it will get them into trouble and they will have to scratch their heads awhile to get a correct diagnosis after making the wrong call.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mattattack415 says:

    Is there any possibility that the sensor is bad but it’s not throwing codes?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Elet says:

    I have a 2011 Toyota Tundra that has the same symptoms. Wonder if I just need to replace my speed sensor?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Goleman says:

    man I got a head-scratcher today I went and picked up a trailer backed up to it work just fine drove it home went to go back it up will not move in reverse it goes chunk when I put it in reverse but it will not move have you ever ran across that problem it is a 2002 burango

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gordon Mckluskey says:

    Mine was the shift sensor between first and second!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars abner galdos says:

    A have an opportunity to buy a 2005 dodge Dakota, 200k miles for $800.
    Is this a lucky strike and what should I be looking for.

    Thank you

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lonnie Christopher says:

    …..So I guess some transmission problems are bad sensors only…..good to know

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BigLoo says:

    Oh look…a Dodge with a transmission problem…

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NerdRage says:

    All I see is "Install quality fake parts" in the background!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Bom says:

    i just got a 98 dodge dakota n i don't know shit about cars. my truck is shifting hard into 2nd. supervisor at work said he had the same problem, and it was just a sensor. he said it was the throttle position sensor, but now i'm pretty sure he meant this one. thanks a lot!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will Jones says:

    I am intersted in knowing what should have been the voltage output from connection to the sensor if the connection was bad

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerromy Young says:

    Mr. O I’m having these same shifting issues with my truck it’s a 1999 Chevy k2500 with the 5.7l 4l80e 4×4 would this problem be the same as mine ??

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephan Wolf says:

    Hi Eric I have a 2001 Dakota v6 auto 4×4. I went to change the speed sensor like this one. And it's not there. I have a screw in style I guess. Does the screw in style work the same

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bambenek says:

    I can tell the vintage of your videos by checking the condition of the bill on your Jeep cap. Lots of repair jobs have been seen by that cap. Oh and BTW you are not allergic to work. I can tell you love your job by the care you take in your repairs.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Elijah Watson says:

    I haven't watched the video yet, but I'm saying just ship the thing back out. Its a Dodge. A malfunctioning transmission is normal operation.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Research and Build says:

    Remember back in the day when transmissions could shift using engine vacuum? Less stuff to burn out.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars phyzik says:

    Im allergic to work as well… This sounds like an issue I'm having with my '05 Dakota 4×4…. It shifts REALLY hard going into over-drive… feels like the wheels lock up for a second.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Mee says:

    Do you sill get the code PO715 with the speed out sensor or what code would you see thanks. Jeff

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mario Follower of Jesus says:

    Another great fix Eric O Woy to go

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Cat says:

    Should have thrown in a Transgo kit in that thang. You'd Love it. Really addresses some of Chrysler issues with 42/46/47 trans. Three part valve body…got be a good tech
