check your vehicle speed sensor located at the rear of the transmission it may be faulty. What model is it and what transmission/engine do you have?

SOURCE: A/T 2-3 Shift Solenoid Circuit Malfunction (4L60E,

Your car has the 4l60e. Are you getting a code? The solenoid could be bad or there could be a wiring problem. I'd take a quick visual inspection of the harness where it enters the transmission. If that looks ok, drop the transmission pan and locate the 2-3 **** solenoid, it's on the rear of the valve body. Check the wiring inside the transmission. If that looks ok I'd go ahead and replace the solenoid. It's held in by one torx head bolt. Remove the bolt, pull out the solenoid and remove the wiring. New one just bolts right in. Those solenoids are pretty cheap from the dealer, should cost you about $20.,

check your transmission fluid level. see if it's burned. you can try changing transmission fluid, but only half at a time. If you change all your fluid at once, you could blow some seals on older vehicles.

Speedometer off


Over the years I have had many complaints of the speedometer being inaccurate, few times has it actually been the case, about 5% I would say. You can have the speeds checked for accuracy by any dealer using a known good vehicle speedometer pace car, done the test dozens of times. Normal speedo accuracy is plus or minus 3 MPH.

Well i'm going 60 mph but my speedometer read 70 plus for avery mile that i travel the meter read 1 1/3 so my car is gona hit 1k if i still friving like that?


In most cars especially those older models, the speed sensor for the speedometer is located in the transmission. Check for physical wear on the cable that leads from the transmission to the back of the dashboard. If you have increased the size of the tires dramatically, the actual car speed would be slower then the speedometer. Either the components responsible for measuring speed (speed cable, dashboard, speedsensor) is damaged or tire size or transmission parts or the transmission itself was replaced.

1998 chevy camaro speedometer is reading about double my actual speed i have a 3.8l v6


This usually only happens when you try running specialty tires on the vehicle which are smaller than the recommended size but can also happen if the speed gear in the transmission is damaged or worn or if the speedometer itself is malfunctioning. If your using the correct size tire on the vehicle the next step would be to check the speed sensor gear on the transmission. If that is good and not worn or damaged then replace the speedometer itself.

1996 dodge ram 1500 5.9 2wheel drive automatic code reading multiple cylender misfire, also speed odometer reading 10 to 15mph slower than actual speed ie 55 is actually 80


I need to verify something about your vehicle. Are youan the original owner and did your speedometer suddenly start reading slower, and was reading normally before? Or did you just find out recently because you got a ticket or somebody clocked your speedometer by riding along side you? If you are not the original owner, I would check the tire height rating from the manufacturer versus the rating of the tire you have on the vehicle now. If the manufacturer installed a "G" series and you have a "H" series, for example, your speedometer will read slower than your actual speed as the "H" series is a taller tire. The higher the letter in the series, the taller the tire will be. (larger in diameter)
Regarding your random cylinder misfire, I would recommend replacing the spark plug wires. Also, the be sure to use the conveluet heat shields that surround the wires that are routed around the exhaust manifold. Be sure to route them correctly or the excessive heat will cause them to break down prematurely.

Have you called transmission place? Did they also install it? Ask them if they changed speedometer adapter, and mention the difference in speed.
