You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

Speedometer bounces from current speed down to zero (where it sometimes sticks)


It won't be a cable, as it's impossible for a cable driven speedo to perform this way.
It's an electronic speedo.

Check and/or replace the speedo sensor in the gearbox housing.

Reset computer in doege stratus wont pass inspection drove 50 miles and computer still didnt reset help


U have to operate the engine at all kinds of diff speeds and drive modes, it is called a OBDII drive cycle, here is how u do one.
1. As soon as the engine starts, idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defrost on. OBDII checks oxygen sensor heater circuits, air pump and EVAP purge.

2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks for ignition misfire, fuel2_bing.gif trim and canister purge.

3. Hold at a steady state speed of 55 mph for three minutes.

OBDII monitors EGR, air pump, O2 sensors and canister purge.

4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. OBDII checks EGR and purge functions.

5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks misfire, fuel trim and purge again.

6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.

OBDII monitors catalytic converter efficiency, misfire, EGR, fuel trim, oxygen sensors and purge functions.

7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. OBDII makes a final check of EGR and canister purge

Replaced speed sensor, spedometer still not working.


Your instrument is bad, The spiral coil for the needle is alraedy out ot calibration therefore it has been jumping around. Even they reset, it already been stretching. It needs a new one.
Don't waste mony for the reset.
It is probebly expensive from dealer plus labor. Just to check out the price,
You can get a used one from ebay for $85. However, you need to know how to replace it. Let me know it you need any help.
Meanwhile you can gauge your RPM to keep your speed under control on the long trip.For example: 2000 rpm is about 55 mph. Try to keep it below 3000 rpm so you don't get over speed limit.
