The sensor is screwed into the outside of the trans case and can be replaced in the car.
It's probably a bad sensor or bad wiring/connection, I'd think if the drive gear was incorrect the speedo wouldn't have worked from the beginning.

Thanks, Mulder. Makes sense to try the speed sensor first since it is accessible.

First, try just unplugging the connector and reseating it. You might get lucky and just have a poor connection there, never know.

Another good idea, Mulder. Especially considering the symptoms this morning: the speedo works above 20 mph and it is accurate above that speed. I am relieved, as it seems more likely it is a sensor/electrical problem than a gear problem.
