Question about Cars & Trucks
This is an OBDII vehicle.If the speedometer doesn't work,but you didn't get a Check Engine light,you probably have ann issue with the cluster.It could also be the wiring,you might want to verify continuity up to the cluster first.(The ECU gets its info about the vehicle speed from the same sensor as the cluster,so the lack of a Check Engine light is a good indication that it is not the vehicle speed sensor,or the wiring up to the ECU).

yes the speed sensor on the top of the diferencial controls the speedometer, milage, and the ABS breaking system. that light should be on as well, I had the same problem for about a year until I got myself a diagnostic computer, plugged it in and there I got all my codes.

you should have your vehicle scanned with OBDII.(on board diagnostics) . take it to a shop and tell them your engine light is on and they'll hook a computer to it and find out why

Check the available vacuum at a manifold port with the engine idling. It should be 17-21 inches of vacuum. If it is to low,it will give you multiple vacuum concerns. Also, I don't think this unit had a vacuum advance. This timing and advance should be controlled by the on board computer (or PCM). If you turn the distributor it will not change the timing but it will throw the fuel system out of synchronization. Here is the vacuum diagram I have. If you need anything else,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

On the V6 and V8 engines, the crankshaft position sensor is bolted to the cylinder block near the rear of the right cylinder head.
