Why does my 1990 d150 pickup change from 1st to 2nd to 3rd gear before 10 miles per hour I replaced the vehicle speed sensor but it did not change anything could it be the speedometer pinion not turns?

either the throttle valve cable is unhooked, or the governer inside the transmission is stuck.

If your speedometer isn't working then that gear needs replaced before it'll shift

No! It is not illegal if A Certified Garage will gives you the reason for the change like 'Motor changed' or if your original 'cluster' was not functional.It is illegal if you sell your vehicle under the misimpression that the vehicle had done less mileage because of the replaced head and the seller does not inform the buyer of this change. A better way to deal with this situation is to get a written and signed by the buyer statement before parting with the vehicle!!

Many people are hesitant to buy a hybrid vehicle because they have heard that the batteries need to be replaced long before the car's useful life is over. Typically, car manufacturers build hybrid cars with the belief that the batteries will last about 8 years or 200,000 miles before they might need to be serviced or replaced. Your hybrid vehicle usually will come with an 8 year warranty on the batteries and if they need to be replaced before then, the Dealer or Manufacturer will replace it either for free or for the depreciated value of the battery pack.

Before buying any used vehicle there are a few things you should know. You should know how many miles are on it, if and when parts have been replaced or refurbished, and how well it runs.

I didn't know my car was going 72 mph because the speedometer broke. The needle on the speedometer bounced whenever I hit a pothole. The speedometer's needle was stuck at 15mph. Before I could glance at the speedometer, the policeman's radar gun clocked me going over the speed limit.

No your lungs cant be replaced because you ll die before you can.

If a head gasket is leaking, it has already failed and needs to be replaced and if you keep driving this vehicle you will bey buying a new engine.

To the intelligent person, that decision should be a function of the value of the REPAIRED vehicle as compared to the projected cost of repair. You should determine the value of the vehicle BEFORE repair, add that amount to the cost of repair and if that total is MORE than the value of the vehicle after repair, sell the vehicle without repair. Some people have an emotional attachment to a vehicle. That changes the way you make decisions.

definitly a part...either the odometer unit itself, a speedometer cable or just the gear that's in the transmission under the cable...I say this as I've never seen a digital speedometer on any topaz or tempo from 1990 a before

My bet is anything before the eighties. You will still need to inspect the electrical system of any vehicle you try to drive. You will need to replace the selenoids, if there are any. If you're looking for an EMP proof vehicle, may I suggest anything from the 20's, with the hand cranks.

For a better chance at getting the vehicle loan, increase your credit after the vehicle loan. Increasing your credit before may reduce the your vehicle loan amount.

No you can't. I'm having the same problem! In Michigan the Secretary of State requires a vehicle to be insured before you can register it but my insurance company requires the vehicle be registered in my name before they will insure it!
