    Of course the MTX has a VSS. It's located at the base of the speedo cable.

    Without your codes, you might as well fart into a hurricane.

    Get the codes.

    It also is not the CPS. When it fails, the RPMs drop and the engine stops running, perhaps momentarily, perhaps for a lot longer.

    :frown: Sorry I posted the wrong info. Yes the MTX does have a VSS. As noted, it plugs into the spedo cable. I would have tried to fix my post, but I actually had to go back to work (go figure).

    Nice catch! :thumb:
