what are symptoms of a bad/faulty transmission speed sensor

because i dont know weather its the transmission or a faulty sensor or TCM, its like the car hesitates to shift from 2nd to 3rd and sometimes 1st to 2nd like it will go all the way to 4000rpm before it shifts . i changed the MAF and it worked fine for few weeks so i figured it cant be the tranny. so does this sound like a faulty speed sensor. also what is the revolution sensor and the tranny speed sensor different or the same

The sensor plugged into your tranny is for your speedometer. The sensors at the wheel control cruise control/ABS/SLIP, etc.

Do you have a ESM? Have you flushed the system and checked any of the solenoids?
