Pretty sure code 17 is vehicle speed sensor or speedometer. If you have an automatic, You'll need to check it cause it won't allow the transmission to go into overdrive.

Everyone has read your topic and we're first waiting for you to do a tune-up and check timing first.

Be careful if you go to the junkyards cause someone once said that the manual trans. are different from the auto transmissions for the vss.
