Same general location, different sensor...

I just noticed that the link you provided was to a sensor for an automatic transmission VSS, are we talking slushbox or 5-sped here?

Ok is there a way to tell if the tranny he has is from a 1998, like a number or the look or something that distinguish it's a 1998 model?

Thanks for all your help, you help me hope you can help a friend of mine.
