VSS - Vehicle Speed Sensor located on top of your tranny.

I had the exact problem as you last week, and then I went to Auto Wreckers on Sewells and picked up a VSS from the place and installed it myself, cost only $75.

When it stops working the ECU should throw a CEL.
If it doesn't it's not the VSS.

If it's not VSS then it could be the connection back to the cluster is bad, or perhaps even the cluster.

How often does this happen? Any patterns?
