on the 3.8 from underneath the car follow the speedo cable from steering coluumn area across the the transmission you can feel the cable and the vss sensor you can't see it. the exhaust pipes restrict acess but it is possible to remove without exhaust removal jack up vehicle remove drivers tire. it really helps if you have someone to help at this point you need a 10 mm swivel socket several 1/4 extensions about 20 to 30 " of extensions. 1 person holds the ratchet from the wheel well while other person guides socket to the retain bolt and tries to hold socket on bolt while helper turns ratchet this will remove the vss pull wire cable and sensor back in thr direction of the cable. the speedo cable is a 2 piece unit the lower half can be removed . once vss sensor is out disconnect wire and cable. I haven't ever been into the dash areas so I can't help you on that end. Doing the lower end can be very difficult good tools small hands and mechanical ability is a plus the speedo cable connects into the vss which enters transmission it has a gear on end which is driven. it all pulls out once the 10mm bolt is removed 3/8 ratchet and extensions may also work
Check or change transmission fluid and filter
There is no Cable it is a speed sensor on the transmission
Yes. The speedometer reads off the transmission tail shaft, and the speedometer is geared (in a mechanical system) or programmed (in an electronic system) accordingly.
the speed sensor.
? The speedometer cable attaches to the transmission, not the engine. Please try again with more info.
you will need to change out the speedometer cable or if your lucky its just loose and fell off the back of the dash depending on the car make and model
To change the speedometer cable on a 1990 Toyota truck, disconnect the cable, feeding it through the grommet, then disconnect it from the transmission. The process can then be reversed with the new cable.
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?
on the top of the transmission it is very hard to get to i just got mine changed at a shop and i watched the guy change it.
Since you have to drop the pan in order to change the filter, follow the instructions in the "Related Question" below...
The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.
