    Twice my mechanic tried to find codes I do not know what cycling means but he is good mech I still think it is the speed sensor as when I am going fast and the speedo goes wild I experience no change in performance and my mechanic said that the trani goes into third if this is the issue soeven though no codes i think it is the problem but my mechanic has doubts as no codes and problem only happens once a day and is not getting worse
    Any feedback would be appreciated

Suspect vehicle speed sensor at transmission faulty. Cycling key to retrieve fault codes may confirm. Are you aware of how to do that?

Speedometer not working

If the speedo and odometer do not work, the problem is usually the speed sensor in the transmission. If the odometer works but not the speedo, the problem is usually inside the speedometer assembly.

Erritic speedometer

Could be the speed sensor in the transmission. The component would need to be tested.

The output shaft sensor is where the TCM gets its info. And what the speedometer runs off of. It is best to have a diagnostic ran on this first. But shooting from the hip, I would go for the output sensor.

1992 mazda mpv , auto trans has rear wheel drive, in the snow wheels spin, so it is not safe to drive the van, it is out of control. There is no siwtch to change the balancem as noted in the wehicle...

Vans are typically a challenge to drive in the snow. Try some better tires, get some with some rude tread and a low treadwear rating (under 100 if possible). If you go to a bias-ply traction tire you'll lose a lot of that sideways slipping, but you'll also lose a lot of braking ability under all other conditions than snow so you'll have to keep a slower speed at all times, and they'll wear out fast.. but they still rule in the snow, I got 'em on my old truck right now.

And drive really carefully too.

Starter for chevy starcraft van 1992

if you have a small block v8 (most common) the starter will be on the passenger side at the back of the engine where the exhaust pipe comes down from the engine first disconnect the neg cable on the battery. to remove the starter you will have to get under the van,there are two bolts that hold it on the engine (use a 9 socket) remove these two bolts and the starter will drop down,then remove the wires (note the location they came from as aftermarket starters have more terminals than you need) reverse these steps to re-install
this may help as well
hope this helps!.....thanks for choosing fix ya!
