Speed sensor

Howdy all,
I have a 2001 dodge and between 45 and 50 it was jumping in and out of overdrive real fast. Speeding up would stop it or just taking it out of OD. After reading in various threads, I gathered that the speed sensor was the most likely cause so I replaced it with a new. Sure enough that did the trick. The old one was covered with real fine metal powder. Been about 2 to 3 years since I had the TC replaced and all.
Question, is the old sensor still good if I clean it off or should I just trash it?
Thanks

I have a code 0500. I checked with the key trick because I was pulling my trailer and the tranny was searching a little but the road was kind of bumpy so I wasn't too sure.
Aren't there two speed sensors on the tranny/transfer case and one on the rear differential? I haven't seen any other symptoms since but I will replace all three. There only 20 or so bucks apiece. Which sensor did you guys replace and how the hell does the one on the differential come out? Screwdriver? Sledge? Chainsaw?HELP!

I just changed the one on the back of the trans. on the driver's side. Don't know about the others, haven't really looked for them.

Mine is still doing it from time to time even after the sensor on the trans was replaced. I think ive got bigger issues. Thinking my converter may be on its way out.
