How do I add trans fluid without removing speedometer cable?

if you don't have a dip stick then you don't
Ford at one time decided that only qualified ford service centers could add oil and made it so that the quantity of oil was pumped in while the engine was running
the reason was that it prevented contamination of the oil by back yard operators
ON some GM transmissions the same philosophy was adapted but there was a severe backlash from consumers
Go to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop and talk with them as too much oil is just as bad as not enough
get a proper diagnosis and a quote
there are ways around the problem but you need practical advice on how to do it

Speedometer stopped working pulled all fuses mileage lights back on gas guage now worksspeedometer spun all the way aroundchecked fusest didnt spin back aroundstuck under the little plastic nub by 0

Google year & make of car for fuse panel fuse diagram. Do the fuse trick you did. If you notice any corrosion or caked gunk on fuse legs...replace fuse....If problem persists it's probably the VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor which gives the vehicle speed to the speedometer.

I have an 1992 88 oldsmoblie and my speedometer stop working whats wrong

Unscrew the speedometer cable from the side of the transmisson. Pull the cable out of the transmisson. While someone else sits in the drivers seat and looks at the speedometer you turn the end of the cable quickly. If the speedometer doesn't move the cable is faulty. Replace it
To check the speedometer only disconnect the cable from the speedometer and insert a small screwdriver.Turn the screwdriver quickly. If the speedometer doesn't move then the speedometer is faulty and must be replaced.

1999 Subaru Forester speedometer not working

About the only way is to diassemble it, but it sounds like it's not wrth doing. Your speedometer is having some real malfunction issues anyway. Might as well get a new one (or used). If you did get the needle to the right place, it's just going to end up in the wrong one again.

Needle on the speedomer has goon all of the way around and is pegged up against the pin

I had this same thing occur in my 2001 Town & Country, it always happens when I have to do any electrical work that requires unhooking the battery. Once the van restarts, the needle swings around backwards, but there is a small retaining nub that keeps it from making a full revolution. In my 2001 this is easily fixed, you just pop off the dashplate around the upper half of the steering column, and then there are four bolts holding the clear plastic instrument panel cover in place. Once you remove those, you just pull off the speedometer needle, then replace it on the other side of the retaining nub. Be careful when touching the little nub however, it is rubbery and quite delicate. Hope this works for your 2002!

Problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03

This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
