Re: My speedo wont work

where is it located, also i notieced that it works then just stops working and goes to 0. after a few seconds starts working agian. Also as soon as it hits 0 rev limiter hits at about 6500- 6800, when im redlining it. not very good for the car i would think.

It's def your VSS.

The VSS is located behind the engine. It's located btwn the engine and firewall.

What you described is exactly what happened to me and I found it was due to my VSS crapping out on me.

Re: My speedo wont work

okay... your vss is located on the transmission. 5spd right??? three wires go into it usually what happens is the wires back out of the plug. its a common problem. gray three wire plug.

How to change the VSS (Vehilce Speed Sensor)

if you do need to change it... there is the right up.
