Re: NEED HELP ASAP !!!

you need to hook your car to a scan tool and see if there are any transmission codes (current and pending) first.

Possibly your speed sensor. Sounds like you have an automatic.

Re: NEED HELP ASAP !!!

Speed sensor should be an easy fix. As far as your tranny goes, if its going out the speedo failing probably has nothing to do with it.

Re: NEED HELP ASAP !!!

I would guess your speed sensor is bad. Good news is if it is your speed sensor it's a pretty easy fix, not too difficult to get to and don't need an extensive set of tools. Good luck man hope thats what shows up when you get it checked
