    My car is a 2006 chevy colbalt. Where can i find the censor for this car for the speedometer. And why after we drained oil to transmission and filter and gasket, when we were replacing oil it was coming back up on top

  • Adam Truesdale Apr 24, 2015

    not sure what you mean when you say its coming out the top. if you had water in the with the trany fluid you went into alot of water. more then a couple inchs. if you submerge the trany you first of all never drive into deep water. second getting the water out of the trany is not just as simple as opening a plug and let the oil and water out. you still have fluid in the lines and torgue converter. you might have to flush the fluid 2 times to get it all out. after 4 quarts you might have to start the trany turning and then add more after you turn off the car. do that a couple quarts till you get the suggest amount for doing the job. might need 5 quarts then let it run and warm up. then change it again till it starts working correctly.

SOURCE: Changed oil in transmission and filters now won't go into gear

I Fixed it !!! What happened was that the "O" ring that came with the filter wasn't fully seated in the pump before i put the filter on. It was kind of hard to get it to seat properly I had to get a hammer and a socket w/ an extention and tap it in. It wont go in with finger pressure alone. To find out if this is what the proble is then take off the pan and remove the filter, if the "O" ring is attached to the filter when u remove it then this is the problem.

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

I have swift vxi 2010 model . its steering has become heavy and speedometer gone dead. EPS light is on wat can be the problem


check all fuse in both fuse boxes.
power sensor?
electronic power steering failure.
you can:
1: get it fixed. (any ASE shop would be happy to help.)
2: read the FSM and learn the tests to find the cause.
3: and scan the PCM to see what EPS failures are happening,
and post those.
or look them up in the FSM to see the tests.

1998 Mitsubishi Ecplise having problem in rain!


Now by what you have said in the rain your car is nearly dying on you. Check whether the splashed water reach your electronics especially the distributor. Also when surely your car is nearly dying on you the power steering which is working with a belt on a crank shaft pulley reduced the turns and cause the power steering pump not to give the needed pressure to the steering. Also there is another reason for heavy steering,is when you pass from water and water goes on your belt which might a bit loose slips against the pulley and loose pressure.

I have an audi a4 1996 2.6 v6 the auto transmission will not select gears after i drove it in very heavy rain conditions. is there a possibility water could have gotten into the transmission and if i...


The transmission should be totally sealed from rain getting in unless you were submerged,even then not really.What sometimes can occur although rare, is that in very heavy rain and slip conditions the controls and sensors for torque distribution and anti spin and lock can get a liitle confused and set off numerous fault codes.The system goes into limp home mode that usually limits revs and/or shift changes.I would first make contact with a garage or dealership that can successfully read your ecu for fault codes and clear them.Also does your speedometer and /or rev counter still function correctly,as a speed sensor fault can give a similar fault,but again it will set of a fault code.I hope this helps or at least will get us closer to a solution.

NO Power in ACC, Car will not start


Some how you may have got water up under the engine where it could have in 1 in a million shorted some of your wires. I would check your connections under the hood first. If you have a volt meter. I would check the battery to make sure your still getting 12.9V from it. But what your talking about seems like a short in you car to me. Good Luck!

Power steering went out while driving and battery


If the belt gets wet and flies off, or starts to slip, the power steering and alternator will stop spinning causing this condition.

Check belts to see if they are still on the truck and spinning the pulleys of the alternator and power steering pump.
