How to disconnect speedometer cable from transmission on 1990 ford f150?

unscrew the cable from the transmission. if you can`t unscrew it,unbolt the lock bolt that holds the little bar which keeps the speedometer cable in place and remove the speedometer driven gear assembly from the transmission. the gear is plastic and is what the cable is driven by.

Radio fuse blew, speedometer quit working. After replacing fuse the speedometer is very sluggish (goes up fast down slow)

You may need a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is located on the Transmission on the Passenger side out-put shaft housing.

My b/f has a 1990 Fleetwood Cadillac...He believes the fly wheel may be broken...Where is the fly wheel and are they easy to replace?

Flywheel is between the motor and transmission the starter actually runs the flywheel to start the motor. To change it you will have to pull the transmission away from the motor to get to the bolts that hold it to the motor. Not the easiest thing to replace by any means.

My b/f has a 1990 Fleetwood Cadillac...He believes the fly wheel may be broken...Where is the fly wheel and are they easy to replace?

the fly wheel is located at the back of the engine block. You will have to drop the transmission to fix it. The hardest part of this job is dropping the transmission. the fly wheel is held on by 8 bolts. bery simple. If your b/f is not a mechanic, he can get a book called the Chiltons manual for that car. It will give him step by step instructions on how to replace it, and what tools are needed.

Speedometer works and stops working intermittently. I don't know how to unplug to clean the contacts

This vehicle 1990 does not have a digital speedometer correct.?
The cable runs from the output shaft of the transmission to the rear of the speedometer.
Therefore either the cable is defective ,speedometer itself or the gear it works off of in the transmission.
This could be fustrating especially if you determine its the gear on the outputshaft.( have to remove transmission from vehicle to repair it) Take the vehicle to transmission shop they do this in there

Speedometer/Transmission problem when car is cold

I would take this car and get the transmission fluid and filter changed ASAP. Acting sluggish when cold is a sign of a dirty transmission filter.
