SOURCE: 02 Pontiac Grand Am 2.2L Ecotec hesitation

Unfortunately, I have the same problem with my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. Regarding the emissions, it is just a matter of elimination. So far, I've replaced the sensors related to the fuel system but my car's hesistation stills exists. Midas did a smoke test and revealed no leaks. Checked the cylinder heads. Had the tranny replaced. New fuel pump & filter.I suspect that it could either be my computer or a loose wire somewhere. Anyways, I share your frustration. Good luck

My speedometer doesn't work, where is the wire located? it's a 2003 grand caravan se.

Your speedometer is controlled from your transaxle which is controlled by the computer. Usually a bad VSS sensor causes the speedometer malfunction. Are you getting any codes?

1997 honda accord se need to change vss,where

For 1997 Honda Accord 2.2L MFI 4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location is located mounted on transmission.

The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC voltage signal to the PCM that determines the corresponding vehicle speed.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
  3. Using a Digital Volt-Ohmmeter (DVOM), measure the resistance (ohmmeter function) between the sensor terminals. If the resistance is 190-250 ohms, the sensor is okay.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the three terminal connector from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  3. Remove the fasteners that secure the VSS to the transaxle housing assembly.
  4. Remove the VSS.
To install:
  1. Install the VSS.
  2. Install the mounting bolts.
  3. Connect the three terminal connector to the sensor.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
Hope helps (remember rated this).
