Hi there

Start by checking whether the Throttle Body is clean on the inside. Spray it thoroughly with Carburettor Cleaner and drying it afterwards by blowing it dry with Low Pressure Compressed Air. Make sure the Idle Air Control Valve is CLEAN!!! Do same as with Throttle Body. Make sure ALL wire connections to components on the Intake Manifold are sound and ensure that the terminals inside the connectors are sound. Make sure the Manifold Absolute Prssure Sensor (MAP) is wirking fine and that there is a good "O" Ring Seal between the MAP and the Manifold.

Good Luck!!!!

After market alarm or remote start. Every time I find them on a car with a security or electrical problem, I tear them out. Fixes the problem 99% of the time.

Speedometer jumping up and down and car will not pick up speed.

Based on your actions, it sounds like a wiring problem.
Could be a weak connection at the cluster, or the speed sensor.

My nx isn't firing at all. It just clicks. All the lights show up. Thinking its the starter motor, but we've been unable to get the starter off the car to get it checked. It seems to be seized or glued on!...

Clicking with no rotation can either be the starter solenoid, weak battery, corroded battery terminals/clamps, or a loose connection at the battery.
Before condemning the starter, have someone turn the key and see if the clicking sound is coming from the battery area, also clean the terminal/clamps, and make sure the connections are tight.
Also try jump starting it. If it jump starts then the battery is fine.
I would recommend having the battery checked when you take the starter in.
Now if you are having a hard time getting the starter out it is more likely that there is a bolt/nut that is still on rather than the starter being seized in the flywheel. If you are 100% certain all the bolts are out then whack the starter with a hammer and watch out because it is pretty heavy and once it falls could easily break a finger or injure you in another way.

One thing to do, would be check the condition of your rad hoses. Not uncommon for them to be fine at certain speeds, but soft enough to collapse & restrict flow at higher speeds.

1996 Ford Ranger SuperCab every time I crank my ranger, the engine rev really high. After running for a couple minutes, it begins to slow down to idle speed. Also, if the vehicle is put in gear while high...

With out a check engine code there could be few things that can do this, clean the mass air flow sensor, check your engine air cleaner and then if this doesn't help, have someone start the car while you watch the throttle linkages, after it warms up watch which linkage moves when the engine speed drops this will be connected to the problem sensor / auto choke. Try unplugging it to see if it helps before you go out and buy a new one.
I hope this helps

Speedometer has quit working.

The voltage of your car's battery and the surge from the other car's battery when you jumped might have been enough to blow the fuse on the electronic speed sensor, or the sensor itself, try locating the fuse box and search for anything to do with sensors or so, if there's nothing wrong there it's the sensor itself, and you'll need to take it to a workshop.
