I have a 1999 suzuki grand vitara 2.0 5 speed what speed sensor do I need and what colour


easter egg hunt 1million
Car speed?
or ABS speed sensors. we cant guess, whats wrong, can we.?
USA car,? we are USA, cars not here are vastly different.
so........????????
why ask not telling problem? scans told you sensor is bad
post the DTC error. speedo dead.Odom, dead? what?
J20 engine ,
5 speed stick shift box. manual trans,,m/t
4wd or 2wd?
toss coin NOT ABS sensors.
there are 2 speed sensors ill do all 3 permutations of car
4wd one or tail of transfer case
2wd one on tail of 5speed box.
any, the backup speed sensor in the speedometer cluster
89-98 years and was deleted 1999, usa.

why ask ,tell why. so we can be on the same page and
not have to document all the above.

color is of on concern, only correct part numbers matter !!!

colour (non usa spelling) is my only real useful HINT.
never said speedometer fails. or odometer fails
the trans is manual so no speed sensor needed ever there to shift automatially,its a stick

scan it yet.?
THAT BE FIRST.

i looked at our 1999 usa GV . serv. man
best i can tell speedo has new electronic head.
no speedo cable. first year, in fact. (i owned a 97 and 04)

so when VSS goes dead (say)
the speedo goes dead
odom goes dead
and ECU sets DTC errors for VSS dead.
3 clear symptoms.
some cars have different VSS1 to match, axle gears.
the vss gear on end .

on newer cars with stick shift
like mine now
the aBS sends speed to PCM
so there is no transmission speeds sensors at all , 6sp, m/t
so lacking symptoms, me bollixed.

91 honda accord with blinking S light


tune the engine...bad jgnition parts can cause the trans to shift improprerly...my 4 cyl. camry was not going into 1st gear or studdering on first.. corrected with tune-up and cleaned egr valve.. found a lot of carbon in intake manifold.. also replaced canister purge from tank to intake...still need to correct carbon ...but car shifts perfectly.!!!

1998 Z3.. Manual Trans shudder under acceleration in 2nd gear as it nears 2000 rpms, then goes away as it approaches 2500 rpm's.. Any suggestions?.. Thanks


It could either be the flex disc or drive shaft center bearing. I had the same problem on my 98 Z3 and I replaced both and it took care of the problem.

I have a 1999 Tiburon. Trans starts off in 2nd gear and goes to 3rd but will not go into overdrive.When starting cold though, it will shift 1,2&3. Also overdrive(4th gear) light will not come on.


I would check into the Trans oil temp sensor,they are known to keep the trans from shifting into 4th gear if they have a open or a shorted circuit...This may also be the culprit for the other issues you are experiencing when the trans is at diff temps and doing diff things....The other thing that is known for going bad in that Transaxle is the Sunshell...The splines on the inside of the sunshell strip out and than you will lose pretty much all forward gears,Except for 1st gear most likely and you will also lose Reverse if the Sunshell goes bad...But this will not act any different if the temperature is cold or hot

Ford transmission wines in 1st 2nd 3rd revers, no


It is a 5 speed manual transmission? If it is noisey in all gears except for 4th, then the problem is countershaft bearings.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

1989 dodge dynasty sticks in 2nd gear and releases only after you stop and shut the engine off,could that be a faulty speed sensor ?


If it has overdrive could be a problem with trans. Had a 89 voyager that did same thing it goes to 2nd gear as they call it a" limp home mode." that was a common problem with 89 trans

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?


do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.
