I have a Rav4, 2004 model, auto petrol. It developed auto

hi, I have a Rav4, 2004 model, auto petrol. It developed auto gearbox problems erratically changing gears and also had a loud whinning noise seems to come from rear diff. Diagnosis by autogearbox specialists said it could be speed sensor. I have just bought 2 speed sensors from "ces car parts" at £160 but then found Toyota dealership is costing theirs at £103 plus VAT? and they think its only one speed sensor i need. Who is right because the car is going tomorrow to my mechanic to install speed sensor and once established the gearbox is good then we go ahead with read diff.Assistant: Does the sensor have a wire-wrapped magnet? If so, have you checked it with an ohmmeter?Customer: i have not opened the boxes because ces said I can return any unused /un opened boxAssistant: Are you fixing your RAV4 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: my mechanic will fix it tomorrow so far done nothingAssistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, will the speed sensor once fitted , will we be able to tell if the auto gearbox is OK, my fear is the costs because I wont afford paying for a nother gearbox

I have a 2012 transit 350 RWD with an oil leak from what

Hi I have a 2012 transit 350 RWD with an oil leak from what appears to be the top right of the engine. I have oil collecting on the pipe that runs across the top of the engine bay and goes to the brake servo . There's also oil on the underside of the intake box for the heater . The right of the engine has oil on it which is running down the back of the engine on to the gearbox and dripping of the bottom of the bell housing . I have replaced the oil filler cap with a genuine new ford part as I thought oil was getting pass the old cap as it wasn't a tight fit but I'm still losing oil . The van drives ok and has done 113,000 miles . I wonder if you could please give me some idea as to where this leak could be coming from cheers Leigh.
