This could be caused by a larger or smaller diameter wheel/tire combination being used than the car originally had.
Could also be caused by the speedo being out of calibration itself and/or the speedo cable being stretched.
You have a Camaro 94 z28 with the 110mph speedometer. Will the speed be wrong if you change it to the 150mph speedometer?
The speed should read fine with a GM speedometer, as the 110 and 150 are calibrated to go into the same cars with the same transmissions. ...

Asked in Physics
Does speedometer of a car read instantaneous speed or average speed?
In a car, the speedometer measured Instantaneous speed. This comes from the assumption that the car does not slow down and speed up fast enough for the speedometer to be able to give an average of the changing speed. ...
Asked in Science
Does the speedometer of a car read average speed or instaneous speed?
It reads the instantaneous speed.If you have noticed that the speedometer needle drops and rises with the drop and rise with the cars speed. ...

Why 1992 geo metro speedometer works but dont read proper speed?
Your alignment on the speedometer cable is off. This happens a lot on older Geos. Take it to a mechanic and have them speed test it and re fit it. ...
Asked in Physics
An automobile speedometer is configured to read speed proportional to the rotational speed of its wheels If larger wheels such as snow tires are used will the speedometer reading be high low or no dif?
Larger tires will make the speedo lower than actual speed.
Asked in Cars & Vehicles
How does tire size affect the speedometer in a car?
The speedometer in a car runs based off the speed of the transmission. The gears in the transmission spin at a known rate for the speed the vehicle is traveling at. The faster the gears spin the more the speedometer goes up. If a person replaces stock tires with larger tires, then the tires will spin slower, which will cause the speedometer to read at a value that is less than the actual speed. ...

What is wrong with a 1999 ZR2 Blazer when the speedometer skips and the service engine light comes on and off on long trips?
Get somebody to read the codes. there is a speed sensor that has to be replace in your vehicle and that is why the servie engine soon light come on because it is aware of the problem when the speed is jumping around. ...
What causes speedometer not to read right speed traveling?
Speedometers are not allowed by law to under-read, but are allowed to over-read by no more than 10%. So at a true 30mph, they can legally read anything between 30mph and 33mph. Because they read the speed via a sensor in the transmission, not the true speed of the vehicle across the ground, they have to be calibrated such that they under-read slightly when the vehicle is lightly laden and has brand new tyres fully inflated. As the tyres wear, and if...

During a certain period of time the speedometer of the car reads a constant 60 km per hr Does this indicate a constant speed?
If during that entire period of time the speedometer read 60, then the speed was constant in your relative inertial reference frame ...
Asked in Dodge Ram, Ford F-150, Ford Ranger XLT
Where is the speed sensor on a manual 1994 F150?
I'am not sure about your vehicle, but most have a cable that runs from your speedometer to the transmission. speed is read by a gear that spins the cable. most of the time the cable is simply broken and is pretty easy to replace. if you have a digital speedometer it is usually a simple two wire cord that runs from the side of trasnsmission to speedometer. either way speed is read off the transmission on my 93 f-150 the speedometer...
Asked in Chevy Suburban
Why does my Speedometer read faster than I am driving?
The size of tires can effect that accuracy of a speedometer. Larger tires will cause the speedometer to read less than you are actually going. ...
At what speed does a Governor cut off on ford explorer 1998?
Right around 107 MPH (Remember that your speedometer will read different)
Asked in Kinematics, Rotation
Does mph increase or decrease as tire height increases?
Your speed is based on how many times the axle rotates and is calculated by the car manufacturer based on the wheel size. If you used a tire that was bigger than standard such that the outer ring that touches the road was twice as long, your speedometer would read half the speed. So your mph speed of the car remains the same, but the speedometer registers it as half. ...
Asked in Airplanes and Aircraft
How do you read a aircraft speedometer?
The speedometer of an aircraft measures air speed - that is, is measures the speed of the air going past the aircraft. Airspeed is measure in KIAS - Knots-Indicated Airspeed. There is a method of converting KIAS to true airspeed and ground speed, but, on the subject of ground speed, this is usually done simply by using GPS and LORAN equipment on board, or readings from ground radar units. ...
