This car is known for bad Instrument Clusters. Not to say that it is out of the question that your speed sensor could be bad... But 75% of the time it is the Cluster in the 1996-1997 Accord.. Car Part com Used Auto Parts Market
yes those are an issue, not as major as a blown motor, but still an issue. the vss ( vehicle speed sensor )is located on the transmission and is fa easy to replace.the o2 sensors tell the cars computer if it is running lean ( too much air ) running rich ( too much fuel ) so if you have a bad o2 sensor your car may think it is running lean so it may reduce amount of air or increase the amount of fuel. a bad o2 sensor will reduce your fuel mileage quit a bit. hope this helps, let me know
there 3 sensors, the first is the speed sensor located on top of transaxle, then the NC speed sensor located rear of transaxle and the NM speed sensor located on the front of transaxle,(transaxle = transmission) there are a couple of solenoids also, heres a diagram to help you, hope this is helpful.
Does it hang out at 18-20MPH, regardless of your speed? Mine did the same thing. The problem was an open circuit inside the gauge itself, and there's no repair for the parts. You'll need to get a replacement speedometer gauge, or simply buy a replacement instrument cluster.
If it's not doing the "20mph" thing, then it's possible that you just need a new engine speed sensor. This is located on the rear of the engine block, and is hard but not impossible to reach and replace.
One way to test is to set the car on cruise control when the speedometer is working. If the speedometer cuts out ,but the cruise is still able to maintain your speed, then the sensor is OK and the problem is the gauge. If the cruise control also cuts out, then the sensor is bad.
