Exclamation HELP!!!!Transmission shifting problem!!!??

I have a 98 4.0 4x4 ext cab, the transmission shifts super hard, (has good fluid level) I was told this might be a transmission speed sensor. Well, I bought the sensor now I have no idea where it goes, and I have no idea how to find it I have looked every where for that thing. The only thing I could ever find was the sensor on my rear axel, right on top of the pumpkin, but that is not it. Does anyone have any suggestion, ideas or help??!!!

Is it a manual or automatic? and do you have a check engine light on?

I'd double check over the top and around the back of the transmission, that's where most trans speed sensors will be, sorry i can't give you a specific point but i hope this helps

Try the tail shaft. If it's not that one, then you have the wrong sensor.
