I have a 75 Silverado and the transmition was rebuilt in it. Well now it hesitates to shift into third gear. It just takes it awhile. I was wondering how I could adjust the transmition to where it will shift faster in third gear insted of just burning my gas out. when it shifts into second gear it dose just fine its just third gear. The vaccum hose's are tight and dont have any leaks either. If you think you can help me please drop me a line.

The ABS light is on, because you have no speed signal. The transmission is not shifting for the same reason. The core of your problem is the speed signal. I would first check the speed sensor wires again. One of them may be broken. If not, then you may have popped the ECM (Vehicle Eletronic Control Module). Good luck.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

check your kick down cable attached to the carb, it may be out of adjustment and forcing the trans to stay in "passing gear"

Replaced transmission now abs light is on.


doing it your self is guessing
autozone and others do the code reading for free
at this point I would be checking the wires and connections as that distance after installing would be about right for a connection not put together properly would fall apart or a harness wire would burn through on the exhaust
