    Your speed sensor is located on the transmission just behind the rear pipe. Take it out and clean it first. It is magnetic. Everything should start working again. A word of advice though. Change it out as soon as you can it will fail again. Once they have failed cleaning is only a temporary fix. Also change out your trans. fluid for a good gear lube when you put the new sensor in and you probably wont ever have a problem again.

    Yes it is to the right of the starter. One screw holding it in and a o-ring around it, right.
    The lack of metal fuzz is a good thing, for your tranny anyhow. That doesn't mean the SS is good though.
