'94 vss

I have a '94 Camaro 4L60E throwing an OBD1 code 97 which indicates a VSS problem. The first place I went was to the actual VSS at the trans and found fluid inside of the weather tight connection but not on the outside. Could someone tell me if this is normal.

If weather Pack connector has fluid inside, this is not normal. Liquids such as water & differnt types of oils conduct electricity. This can cause short circuits which rebder the vss non functional while the short exists.

So clean out or buy a new weather pack connector to take the old one's place. And determine what liquid is & where it comes from.

If your obd 1 scanner can do real time sensor data, look and see what mph the vss is sending to the pcm. And is your speedometer working. Here's a link to 94 service manual. It will have complete code info including troubleshooting. My Files

Check the wires from pcm. Iíve had several odd occurrences of 97, 99 43, 43d(knock sensor) and another one. appear and dissappear. I suspect wires melted by header. I pulled pcm out about a dozen times looking for this.

Thanks for the reply's guys. I found a power steering leak that may be the culprit on this debacle although it seems like a 'stretch'. But the fluid seems to have worked it's way along the bottom of engine & trans. Cleaned out the connector and will repair the leak.
