Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
We didn't realize the speedometer was off until after we purchased the vehicle. It is about 5 mph off of what we are actually going. We were just using a GPS for accurate speed, but our son needs to use the car for his driving test and we want to make sure it's working properly before then. We don't have a ton of money to spend on getting it fixed and are worried the dealer will rob us blind if we take it there. Any suggestions on what we can do?
The most common cause of this is incorrect size of the tires or wheels. Check you owners manual or look at the sticker inside the frame of the drivers door to determine the tire size recommended by toyota. Being a used vehicle, it's entirely possible the former owner put the wrong size on the car. If not, the transmission may have the incorrect worm gear, or it could be a bad sensor.

i would disconnect the battery again let it sit for 15 minutes, i changed an alternator and jumped the car then started driving and that happened to me, 20 minutes of driving and the computer finally kicked in and started working again. good luck
