Hi i have a 1995 ford mustang 3.8 v6 5 speed my trip meter doesnt work ive had the instrument cluster replaced and still dont work odometer and tach work just not the trip how to fix thanks

Fords in that era are notorious for broken plastic gears in the assembly. If the Speedometer works and the odometer works but the trip odometer does not work, you can still have a broken or stripped plastic gear. They are very small and cost about $25 but they are a pain to replace. You can send your cluster off to have it repaired by a reputable shop. Just Google instrument cluster repair.

My 97 mitsuibishi galant's speedometer works but not but odometer. it seems as if it is stuck but it wont move at all. please help

Probably need to replace the dash cluster that contains the odometer mechanism. The speed, or mph is controlled by a cable from transmission to the dash cluster. The odometer or miles put on the car runs off the cable through a series of small gears behind the cluster. There maybe a broken plastic gear or something has falling off the car behind the cluster (like a screw or nut) and has caused a blockage on the small gears.

When temperture control is turned up high have clicking noise in dash

You have a faulty "vent actuator", these devices control air flow. This is a common issue on these vehicles. The actuators are made of plastic, even the internal gears are plastic which tend to crack or chip away. This is a costly repair and may require removal of the dash.

Need to replace odometer cable

A broken cable will have neither the odometer or the speedometer working. If your speedometer is working, then the odometer gears in the dash have stripped or come loose, and should be replaced. If the cable needs replacing, pull the cluster out of the dash and unclip the cable end from the speedometer, and unscrew the bottom fitting of cable from the transaxle.

My 89 vette's headlights only open half-way. Is it a gear/bushing problem or a vacuum problem?

There are three round plastic pellets that wear out and turn to powder causing the headlight gearbox to malfunction. They cost about 4 dollars per side, pretty easy fix if you take your time. I just replaced them in my 89 vette. Of course I bought the best brass gear thinking I needed them. The plastic gear was still in great shape, don't waste your money, you don't need the brass gear, They cost $58.00 each. All you need is the pellets, $4.00 on ebay. There is no vacuum on the headlight system
