VSS repair kit Vs. an entire VSS

Which would you say is better? Because seeing as how i'll probably be needing one I'm looking at these two on ebay and was wondering what this excellent forums members think would be better.

You probably don't need the entire assembly, so no point in buying that since you'll be getting all used parts (i.e. might need to replace the electronics soon enough).

The repair kit is a brand new part, so you shouldn't have to worry about it for a long time after repair.

Buy the "gut". By the time the mechanism goes, the car will be a lawn sculpture.

Replaced my VSS over the weekend....

My VSS was acting up recently. Called up Acura of August and their price was higher than getting it on eBay from the seller named "fast-imports". I just got the repair kit and intalled it over the weekend.

It took me a couple of hours but mostly because I took the entire plastic shroud off and didn't take the VSS assembly off completely. I worked on it as it danged from the PS hoses because I didn't want fluid coming out. A little harder to do it that way but worth it in the long run. I didn't lost much differential fluid either. Squirted some back in the diff hole before I put the assembly back into the differential. The worst part was getting the stoopid dust seal ring to stay in place while I put the dust cover back in place.

Anyway, everything works good now. No more jumpy speedo or flashing D4 - cruise is operational now also. The DIY was a big help and the kit also came with directions.

EDIT: Found this while browsing.... http://www.acuraworld.com/tsb/1994/B...560-py3-000%22

Just wanted to confirm information I've received. I want to make sure it's okay to drive my car while the VSS sensor is not working. I haven't received my new one yet. I've read it's okay to drive the car this way until I replace the sensor. Is this correct.

if your VSS not working your gear will shift not very correct. It may be shift too soon or early since your trany can't get the signal from the VSS so it don't know when is the approviate time to shift and engine check light will come up. but its ok to drive. (if your car is a auto trany). I had drove my for more than a year now with the VSS death. it work rarely in a really hot day. but my is a 5spd so i can shift it any way i can or i want to.
