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.

MY OIL PRESSURE GAUGE GOES UP WHEN I DRIVE BUT WHEN I STOP IT GOES BACK TO 40 IS THIS SAFE? I JUST GOT A OIL AND FILTERED CHANGE.


At idle, the gauge usually reads about 40, when engine revs up, the gauge will go up to about 50 or 60. This totally normal and you should know that the reading on the gauge is just made up by the computer because the engine does not have an actual oil pressure sensor.

Its a loose connection on the speedo cable. its a b*tch to get to. I had the same problem on my truck, it would fluctuate in 5th gear on the highway. i spent the money and had a professional do it.
