transmission output speed sensor (OSS)

... or VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) on a manual gearbox. It's located on tthe diff. Check wiring as a first step.

So OSS or VSS are the same

While they tell you the same thing, OSS and VSS are different. I have a similar problem where all guages go out intermittantly. My guess is a loose wire.
