Even though one has a speedo cable, and the other dosen't, the speed sensor itself is essentially the same, the only difference being that one speed sensor has a place for a cable, and the other dosen't. You should be able to make it work, by transferring the speed sensor from one transmission to the other, in other words, leave the speed sensor on the vehicle that it came installed on. The only thing that would be of concern is whether the gear ratio of the sensor is the same. When you pull out the two sensors, count the teeth on the plastic gear. If they are the same, then away you go! If they different, you can transfer the internal drive gear by removing the tail shaft housing from the transmissions. The tail shaft housing is easy to remove. It's only held on with 5 or 6 bolts, and it's pretty self-explanatory.
yes, but manual trasmission ONLY
it doesnt have one, read your manual
The speedometer sensor is located on the top of the transmission. It is held on by one bolt. Remove the bolt and gently pull and turn the speedometer sensor and the whole assembly will come out of your transmission. is that on a manual or auto tranny? or is it in the same place for both?
Look up 1991 ford escorts manual transmission speedometer
Rubber plug on drivers side of trans. Near axle.
It will show it in the Hanes manual
manual tranny doesnt have fluid u noob manual tranny doesnt have fluid u noob
Top of the transmission...
Actually , it doesn't have a conventional speedometer cable , it has an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor ( VSS ) according to my Haynes repair manual
remove cluster fuse to reset cluster....if still not working properly replace cluster
The cable is manual drive on a 1991.It plugs directly in the back of the speedometer.
everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the reference section for FREE to make copies of...read up and fix like a pro!! :) Dave
Disconnect everything and pull it out if it is like a manual 1991 ford escort
First check the speedometer cable going into the top of the transmission. If it is not broken the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On your 1995 Ford Explorer you have a conventional speedometer cable driven speedometer , 1996 and newer Explorers have an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor according to my Haynes repair manual
FIAT'S Owners Manual does not list a fuse for the speedo or odo.
simple answer is no it doesnt come in a manual also doesnt come with a vtec engine although have seen them advertised with such but that's just sales man bull
according to the owners manual this could be related to a problem with the ABS. I have the same problem and am looking for a diy solution. also from the owners manual the ABS controls the transmission , and my transmission is shifting roughly, which is what I noticed before I noticed that the speedometer wasn't working.
then your manual
A manual transmision doesnt use transmision fluid
According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
side of transmission thru speedometer cable port
This is very common on the 1996 Ford Escort unfortunately. Basically the speedometer cable has to be re-greased or the speedometer has to be replaced with the older 80mph model. Both "fixes" require disassembly of the dash to get to the cable/speedometer. See the ford escort owners association for more details/instructions.
1) Locate the speedometer cable attachment to the transaxle (just behind the intake manifold on the drivers side USA models) 2) Disconnect the electrical connector form the speed sensor 3) Remove the screw and retaining clip from the speedometer cable (completely move them out of the way so they do not fall into the transmission) 4) Remove the speedometer cable 5) Fluid should be between the top and bottom of the speedometer cable gear 6) Fill as needed 7) Check o ring on the speedometer gear housing replace it if it is damaged 8) Re-install the speedometer cable assembly, retainer, bolt, and electrical connector Remember the Escort uses automatic transmission fluid in the manual transmission for the 1991 - 2000 models' If you want to change the fluid Drain the fluid (drain plug on the bottom of the transmission) Re-install the drain plug. Remove the speedometer as stated above Add 2.9 quarts of Mercon ATF to the transmission Re-install Speedometer cable
