Here is the auto tranny part of the service manual, you can find it in fig 2 on page 2. BTW, you mean the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) right?

If your car is an auto then the speed sensor is on the rear of the gearbox next to the rear engine mount on the right hand side as you look from the front. RPM sensor is on the top of the automatic gearbox housing but you need to seperate a connector box to get 15 and 16 pin.

Make sure you get the correct one to match your cluster
