Need some help :(

So I have a 92 totally stock prelude. Just recently my speedometer stopped working and my D4 light starts to blink and my check engine light will pop on too. Is it all because the speedometer isn't working right or is it because i might have a transmission problem. Its an automatic, and has 4 gears. Please help me!!

Re: Need some help :(

u can start by jumpin your ODB1 and findin out why your check engine light is on. im not too familiar wit how the speedometer works so someone else cud help u on that

Thanks guys, I don't have a OBD1 scanner, but I will check it out. How hard would it be to replace the speedometer myself? See, my ex-boyfriend was a mechanic but he taught me a lot so I think I can do it myself. ;)

Re: Need some help :(

lol yes, I am a girl. :) hence the penguin name. What would cause the speed sensor to go out? The weird thing is that the speedo goes on then flickers then out then sometimes on again...

It's a natural part of aging, really.

Re: Need some help :(

u dont need a OBD1 scanner, u take a piece of wire/paper clip and put each end into 1 of the blue OBD1 harness things from the link i sent u.. and u turn ya car to key on engine off, and check how many times the CEL blinks
