It's either the gauge itself or the sensor to the gauge, or a computer issue.

98 ford contour 2.5l standard trans shows mph in reverse and 40 mph at appr 5 mph


I had a '94 Subaru Legacy that would, without any warning, show extremely excessive speed readings (80 -90 mph.) when I was going only 30 - 40. I never did figure it out, but eventually it totally stopped doing that. I realize this is not an answer, but I suspected the speedometer cable, although I never confirmed it. That almost surely has to be the culprit. You might try and disconnect it, wait an hour or so , reconnect it and see what happens. Good luck !!!

99 ford Taurus won't go over 35-40 mph, however speedometer reads 120 mph from start. Tranny seems fine and no check lights whatsoever.


Scan the vehicle for fault codes first. Sounds like you need to check the vehicle speed sensor signal into the speedometer. If that is ok then send the speedo head out for repair.

sounds like the coil spring for the speedometer needle is bad. you can replace it or buy a new instrument cluster. Look at local salvage yards for cheaper price.

Speedometer off


Over the years I have had many complaints of the speedometer being inaccurate, few times has it actually been the case, about 5% I would say. You can have the speeds checked for accuracy by any dealer using a known good vehicle speedometer pace car, done the test dozens of times. Normal speedo accuracy is plus or minus 3 MPH.

Speedometer error?


Many cars have an error on the speed indicated. 10% sounds quite high, next time you buy tyres go for one size bigger or the next profile up, eg, if you are using 70 series go to 75 or 80. That will sort your problem out and you will get better fuel consumption. You can have the speedo calibrated but I would thing that the cost or effort wonuldn't justify the result.

Speedometer surging. actual speed 40 mph,


Its a loose connection on the speedo cable. its a b*tch to get to. I had the same problem on my truck, it would fluctuate in 5th gear on the highway. i spent the money and had a professional do it.
