i have a 2005 mazda3 2.3L with auto tranny and a few weeks ago i got the AT light but no CEL. on friday it happened again but this time i got the CEL too so i hooked up my code reader and got P0715 (input/turbine speed sensor A circuit). did some checking around online and it appears that its one of 2 possible sensors on the tranny... i'm waiting for a response from the closest mazda dealership on a quote for the parts but they're closed today but i was wondering how hard would it be to change them out myself and does anyone know approx how much it would be for the sensors?
i haven't even had a chance to get under the car yet but from what i've read the one on the bottom of the tranny should be easy but how about the one on the top thats supposedly under the battery box? i'm not much of a mechanic but i did learn a fair bit from having to work on my old grand prix (POS...)
if its not a hard job to do in a driveway does anyone happen to know of any links for some pictures i could look at to get an idea of what i'm actually looking for when i get under/in there, i looked on google for some pics or good descriptions but couldn't come up with anything good, i'd rather avoid ridiculous dealership labor costs if i could
thanks in advance for any help
