SOURCE: interchangeable tranny
no, bell housing is diffrent, 3.8 is bigger, calls for a bigger bell housing, 3.0 is smaller so it calls for a smaller bell housing but even so i think they have diffrent bolt patterns. call a dealership or any parts store to be sure i dont what to tell u no and find out that i was wrong, if you like, i would like to know if i was wrong or not so just put another question on my askers list saying if i was wrong or right, my nickname is bloomerjr and i hope i answered you question.

while it is possible to perform that swap, the newer 2000+ transmissions will have updated internals and such.
so will it work............. yes.
is it optimal.................no.

SOURCE: find and replace speed sensor
On Top of the Transmission. You can see the Black sensor just under the Air Breather Intake assembly in front of the driver side. It has an electrical wire connection and is bolted onto the tranny with (2)5/16" hex head bolts and (1)1/2" nut that holds the throttle arm to the sensor. Very easy to replace.

your transmission oil pan is at the bottom of the trans, the heat shield you are looking to remove is on the right side of the vehicle above where the axle goes into the trans unit. You should find the sensor mounted there with one bolt and one wire plug, hope this is helpful, let me know

The Vehicle Speed Sensor is located on transaxle, at the rear of the engine. I would check the harness connector to be sure it is clean and connected tightly. Also check the wiring for cuts and chaffing. Since it is fairly inexpensive, only about $42.00 from Ford, you may want to consider replacing it, at least to eliminate it as a possibility. You may want to go to a muffler shop to have this done like speedy, I believe the flex pipe needs to be undone to get to the VVS. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, you could always ask them for the step by step instructions to replacing the VVS, and it's free of charge. Good luck and hope this helps.
