it's ether your meter cable is twisted or it's stripped out.



The vehicle speed sensor in the transmission may be bad.


the speed ometer cable is connected to transmission,unless its a4 wheel drive,then its connected to the transfer case.


abs sensors needs replacement I doubt this is true. I have same problem and abs works well on icey roads.


on my 85 nissan,the dial indicator is cracked,i was told i would have to buy a whole new speed ometer,so i use my tacometer to tell me my speed.,no speeding ticket so far,upp i need to knock on wood.


Yes it will send the wrong speed signals to the computer, you can change the gears to the speed ometer signal generator to correct that though. Check with a good auto tire shop , they should be able to tell you what you need to do.


using a high resistance-ometer ANSWER: Some commercial voltmeter have an input impedance of 11 mega ohms So instead of measuring across the resistance you may put the meter in series that will give you a voltage drop due to current that can be calculated to find the other resistance



fill up your tank, , keep track of how many gallons it took to fill up, re-set you trip ometer, then drive your car until the gas light come on, take total miles traveled and divide the by the number of gallons you put in your car and that's your MPG EX 375 miles on 13.5 gallons =27.7 MPG


I have already had to do this... There is a cable that runs from inside(underneath) the speedometer to the front wheel. Make sure both ends are connected properly, also check to see if the cable within the tube is not broken on the ends and reaches both ports. if it does not it will read your speed sporadically or not at all, which was my problem. Its an easy fix and not an expensive part to buy. Only difficulty I had was feeding the new cable through, so be careful.


Located on the back of the transfere case. On my 01 2500 it is on drivers side about 6 inches forward of the rear shaft output. It plugs in. I have the same hard shifting abd no speed ometer. Dont know how to fix yet. I have a 1995 chev 4 wheel drive 1500


you have to find the speedo cable on the side of the trans near the rear. unscrew the speedo ring on the cable and pull the cable out of the trans. then remove the small bolt and clamp on the trans right next to where the cable was. this allows you to remove the speedo gear. it may be hard to remove as it has an O-ring sealing it in the trans. on 4x4 I think the cable goes to the transfer case instead of the trans. but otherwise same process.


this type of drill usually is a high speed drill for drilling holes in metal, as opposed to reversible drills used more for inserting screws. Honestly, the old drill is probably worth more than the newer ones. It most likely has a solid metal body and more durable internal parts to withstand heavy drilling


The speedometer does not take into consideration the size of the tires. It measures the rpm's of the transmission or differential. **incorrect, the speedometer uses a predetermined constant based on the circumference of the stock tire diameter multiplied by the number of revolutions** I suggest driving alongside a friend who can signal you when his speedometer reaches predetermined speeds according to the speed zone and check your own speedometer to determine the speed you need to drive for that speed zone. Do this on a rural road with no oncoming traffic to avoid any accidents.


The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 well i had the same problem all you have to do is take the dash board off then take out the two bolts out for the speed ometer gauges but be careful because the wiring is to the left behind the gauges you have to unclip it then when you get it off there will be a piece of card board behind the gauges remove then you will see the light bulbs just twist them and they come out but dont forget where the light bulbs go and if you go to the dealership they cost around five bucks each bulb


LOCATED IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT DRIVERS SIDE NEAR CENTER BOTTOM OF FIRE WALL SPEED OMETER CABLE ! YOU WILL HAVE TO UNSCREW CABLE AND MOVE ASIDE REMOVE A 10MM NUT THAT HOLDS A METAL PLATE DOWN FOR THE SPEEDOMETR CABLE UN SCREW SPEEDOMETER CABLE THEN TURN RIGHT AND LEFT WHILE PULLING UPWARDS THERE YOU WILL EXPOSE A PINION GEAR ORANGE IN COLOR.THE MEATEL HOUSING HAS A MARKING OR MORE LIKE A MOLDED LETTER F. ON SIDE OF THE ALUMINUMSTEM FILL OIL NO FURTHER THAN THE TOP OF THE F , WITH 90W GEAR OIL. -------------------------- The answer above is correct except the proper fluid is Mercon automatic transmission fluid. Seems odd to put automatic transmission fluid in a manual transmission, but that's the correct fluid.


Easiest would be the Richmond/Doug Nash design. Later Tremac/TKO/T56 single rail designs would require more work/fabrication including cutting the floor of the car. Remember the Richmond has a very steep first gear (usually 3.27), but 5th is 1:1 just like a stock four speed. So if you are looking for a more relaxed highway RPM you woul need to change the rear end gearing to something lower numericaly (2.56-3.08), or get the new Richmond 6 speed it had an overdive 6th gear. Definitely avoid the 5 speed used in third gen F bodies it does not have the torque rating to live behind a Pontiac V8. Bonn_Evil get a five speed from a 2000 camaro,use the camaro clutch disk,change the yoke from your gto drive shaft to the one from the 2000 camaro and you may have to shorten your gto drive shaft you should be ok, you may have to have your speed ometer recalibrated. Rebuttal from Bonn_Evil The 5 speed from the 4th gen F bodies is strong enough, however it has other problems in a older chassis. 1)Early model t-5 & t56 transmissions bolted to the bellhousing at a 18 degree angle, no bell housing is available for a Pontiac V8 to adapt one. Later t-56s have a longer input shaft that is too long for the traditional Pontiac V8 bell housing. Shorter ones are available from the aftermarket. $$$ 2)The trans tunnel will need cut (alot) in the shifter area. (Lowers the value of you car) 3)The shifter will be too far to the rear of the vehicle. (3-4 inches, so you can't use your factory console) 4)The transmission crossover will need to be fabricated and moved back about 3-4 inches. 5)The t56 is five inches longer than a muncie! You WILL have to shorten your drive shaft. No maybe about it. 6)The t56 all used factory hydralic clutch cylinders. Your GTO mechanical will not work. There are aftermarket solutions such as D&D. (more$$$) 7)"you may have to have your speed ometer recalibrated." Yea try to get the electronic pulse generator on the t56 to turn your speedometer cable. Stock GTO gear won't work. Again aftermarket has solutions if you have the money. Do yourself a favor and get a Richmond 5 or the new overdrive 6 speed, it is very close to a bolt in and costs less.


I believe you are attempting to understand why the appearance of the moon at such times seems impossible; from the apparent location of the sun, the shadow "line" on the moon should appear to be perpendicular to a line connecting the moon's center and the sun's center. The answer is that during casual viewing we don't have a good way to observe or comprehend how really large and far away the sun is. In fact, the sun is so far away that for all practical purposes it is infinitely far away. As a result, the rays of sunlight hitting the moon are parallel to the rays of sunlight hitting the earth. The face of the sun is over 860,000 miles across. The distance between the earth and the moon is only roughly 240,000 miles. Several earth-moon spans can easily fit across the sun's face. Even though the sun is about 93,000,000 miles away, it is NOT a pinpoint of light that angles out to strike the moon and the earth at different angles. And it isn't NEARLY as close as our limited earth-bound experience leads us to believe. This gives us a very distorted perception of the earth-sun-moon angle. You can illustrate this in a fun way using Scott's Lunar Phase-ometer (OK, I made up the name). When the moon and the sun are both in the sky, stand where you can see the moon, and where you are in direct sunlight. Take a tennis ball or ball of similar size. Stick a stick through it, or suspend it from a string. While looking directly at the moon (NEVER try to look directly at the sun) hold the ball up at arm's length to cover the moon, and make sure you can see direct sunlight hitting the ball. You will notice that the shadow on the ball will duplicate the shadow on the moon. This can only be so if the light source is hitting the moon and the ball at the same angle (hence the idea that the sun is infinitely far away in a practicalsense). You can also speculate about where on the ball would be your position relative to your position on earth. This might also shed light on the observed position of the moon's illuminated part. Related to this question of the sun's distance, you have probably noticed as have most people in the world, times when sunlight seems to be streaming majestically down in beams that fan out widely from openings in the clouds, as glory from on high embracing the earth. Not. What you are observing is the sunlight coming straight toward you. There is no physical reference to help you actually see it this way; the illusion is that the sun is an orb a few comfortable miles above the earth, and the sun is reaching downward and out. It is like the painted lines on the sides of a long, straight stretch of highway. When you stand in the center (with friends watching for traffic of course) the lines do appear to converge as you look in the distance.
