Question about 1995 Ford Mustang

The speedo in my 95 mustang Gt Is 10 miles an hour fast

When we purchased our mustang last year my wife was driving it home and noticed the speedometer is 10 MPH fast. We are running stock size tires with stock motor and tranny. Is tihs a problem in the cluster or could something further down the line cause this problem.

A vehicle speed sensor that is starting to fail could cause this, or less than likely bad wiring or connections, or yes, a bad cluster could do this... But how exactly did she notice the speedometer was 10MPH fast?? There are no real accurate speedometers in vehicles (Don't get me wrong they shouldn't be off by 10MPH) but there is a 5 or so percent difference high or low in many vehicles even with stock powertrains. I've plugged in with a diagnostic scanner on many vehicles and the dash speedo shows 60MPH, but the electronic speed readout on the scanner reads as low as 55MPH or as high as 65MPH

With 104,500 miles on a 02 gt when should it be tuned up, i haven't noticed it running any differently


A tune up for your engine should be done at 100,000 miles, the factory plugs are designed to last that long before changing. The oil and filter and air filter should go by the maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

1998 civic speedo broke


More likely to be the speedo drive in the transmission or a faulty speed sensor that is electronic i would be guessing here as 98 was the change over year for civic so it depends which transmission is fitted. Don't rip the dash to pieces just yet as i'm guessing this will just create more trouble. Steve Baldam in the UK

first of all thanks for all the information too many times you dont get enough info to correctly identify the problem so kudos.
i realy think your right one your fuel pressure. but you need to check the pressure dont just replace parts. it could be a bad fuel pump or fuel filter . you didnt say what the plugs looked like . were they black( a sign of over fueling and a bad regulator) or bright white (from lean burn) you could also hace an intake gasket leaking that would cause the lean burn,
