shifting problems

My 1998 Ford Contour 4 cyl Auto suddenly started to buck a little and my cruse control stoped working and my speedometer also stoped working. I was on the By pass in cruse control when this happened. I stoped and checked fluid levels and smelled the tran fluid does not smell burnt. I started it back up and my check engine light came on and the car shifts in to the gears ok but does it with a little force. Any suggestions.

Have it scanned to see what codes come up. (autozone) Sounds like maybe a speed sensor acting up.

Tranny fluid has nothing to do with his speedometer/cruise not working, it's his speed sensor like mike-b already said.
