Who do you know if the speed sensor is a little off on a car?

The speed sensor can impact a number of things since it is linked to the transmission. If your vehicle has Anti-lock brakes the speed sensor is also linked to this. Relative to the transmission the speed sensor is used to control the shift points of the transmission and if the car does not shift properly it can affect the overall performance of the car as well as the longevity of your transmission and all of its parts. This is not something I would recommend left unattended. You should definitely have this looked at.
