The temperature, revolution and spedometer indicators don't work!
In this morning, I've just start the engine and all things were fine. After 100 meters, the temperature, revolution and odometer instruments were dead. Not even the number of kilometers is shown. The strange fact is that: all the other instruments works, also the engine, lights and electrical windows.
Please help me...as long as possible without dealers help.

Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the engine.as it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.
To begin with, if you are revving a cold engine to 6000 RPM, you are asking for a blown engine. Most OBD vehicles are equipped with a rev limiter that will cut off fuel at 3000 to 4000 rpm to prevent you from over-revving your engine and blowing it up. If yours is revving to 6000 RPM cold, then the rev limiter, for some reason is not working while it is cold. I have no explaination for this. The best thing I can tell you is to stop revving your engine so high when it is cold unless you really want to see what an engine looks like after is has gone off like a grenade.
When you said you replaced everything, did that include the temperature sending unit?
The temperature sensor just operates the cooling fan or fans for the radiator.
The temperature sending unit operates the temperature gauge in the dashboard. If that thing is faulty, the gauge won't work right.
If you did change the sending unit, it could be possible that the computor is screwing it up, but in my 41 years as a mechanic I never heard of it, when a computor goes, nothing works.
if its a manual speedo then it needs changing ,the magnet /spring inside is either worn or dirty inside the unit causing it to drag.as for the engine check light ??? well i do feel you are wasting you hard earnt cash on this stuff i think it is no more than a split in on of the little vacumn tubes running off the inlet manifold to various things .Make sure this vehicle has a 88ºC thermostat fitted and when you have a cold engine drive straight off and dont warm it up`because you are causing more damage to it running it to warm it up .Starting off from cold will cause it to warm up quicker causing less engine wear.The sluggish gearchanges ?? well how old is it and dont you think the gearbox is a bit worn after all this time like us when we get old .
