Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
While driving my 1997 Ford Taurus all of a sudden the speedometer needle drops down to 0 and when I come to a stop and proceed again the car hesitates as if it won't shift into gear. After a few seconds it will shift into gear but speedometer won't work and I have no power steering. It will do this intermittently while driving and the speedometer will work again and then the same things happen over again while driving. I've been told so many different things that I'm confused and afraid to go to a garage for fear that this will end up costing me a fortune which I definately do not have. Any suggestions. Also the service engine light stays on continuously.
It might be your vehicle speed sensor. It affects your speedometer, your cruise control and your trans shift points. Also, your throttle position sensor (TPS) affects shift points.
