    There is a speed sensor for each wheel (wheel speed sensors), and a vehicle speed sensor (for PCM and speedometer). No such thing as a "speed control sensor".

    How do you know the O2 sensors need to be replaced? How do you know there's a speed sensor problem?

    Were the codes pulled???

    Which codes came up?

    I didn't pull any codes her dad did and he stated that the O2 sensors need to be replaced, which I think they might need to be cleaned. I know from the jump that she need with the Crankshaft Position/Angle Sensor because from what I seen it will drive about 3 miles and shut right off..

    If I remember later, I'll try to find one. But for now, try Googling Catera CKP Sensor.

    Have you been googling CPS or CKP? CPS = Central power supply. It's often misused in this forum.
