    I posted earlier about my 98 Civic HX having a surging problem between 2000-3000 rpm.
    Well I did a little research and found that the problem might be in the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). My question is where is this thing located and what does it do ? Thanks

    I don't understand how it could be the vss, but the vss tells the ecu how fast the car is going. It is located on the top part of your transmission underneath where you would have an intake pipe coming off the throttle body of the intake manifold.

    VSS = Vehicle Speed Sensor, it's located on the back of the tranny pretty low, close to the rear tranny/motor mount.
