If you're referring to the plastic gear that fits into the transmission case, you can pick them up at any Ford parts dealer. You'll need to know the color and/or teeth count. They only run a couple bucks.

Speedometer bounces when I drive. It seems to be the output sensor when I look at it while its running and in gear the output part is not spinning. I cant find the part


Spinning? This is an electronic magnetic sensor so it has no moving parts. If this is an older car with a cable operated speedo I would not call the output section a sensor, but rather the cable drive. A broken cable can make the speedo bounce, and if you disconnect the cable to look at the end of the drive unit you may be looking at a cable input guide which does not move vs. the internal part which spins. With cable removed, spin the inner part by fingers while helper views speedo. Does it move (try both directions). If cable is broken you can buy a universal repair kit.

1978 delta 88 speed cable not working


start at the beginning, at the tranny to see if spedo drive is working ,this is no easy task you need to DO THIS SAFELY jack up rear wheels in the air, chuck front wheels PLEASE !!! PLEASE take all nessary safety percautions when doing this ,remove cable going to tranny , with 2 people put it in drive ,with foot on brake and let wheels move very slowly you should see speedo cable drive moving , if not that's your problem replace speedo drive but also check the ends of cable, they should fit very good without much loosness into speedo and the drive side going in , most are shaped in a square with slightly rounded corrners,if it works reattach cable to drive and remove cable from back of speedo and see if cable is moving ,if not cable is broken somewhere ,if that works then its your speedo that is broke. i wish you good luck ,hope this helped .

Speedometer not working in a 1999 chevy trailblazer


Is this an analog or digital speedo? If analog, three possibilities come to mind: 1. broken speedo cable; 2. broken speedo head assembly: broken speedo drive gear in the transmission final drive/output shaft area. If digital, could be many things.

I have a 1981 corvetter the speedo does not work but the rpms work i checked and everything is plugged in what do i do?!?


on a car that old the speedo is most likely mechanical. there is a long cable in a jacket coming out of the end of the transmission which goes into the back of the speedometer. jack the car up and find and unscrew that cable. if it is broken buy a new one at a dealer or parts store. if it is not broken find an old transmission man and find out if there is a replaceable speedo drive gear in the transmission. if not you may be looking around for someone to fix that old speedo. google it i am sure there is someone out there willing to take your money.

Odometer not working


Could be that speedo cable has become disconnected or that the inner shaft has broken. The speed cable is connected between the back of the instrument cluster and the left side of the transmission. Check under the car that the cable is securely fitted to the side of the transmission. Disconnect it and and check on the condition of the square drive flexible shaft. The spinning of this inner shaft is what conveys the output shaft speed of the transmission to the instruments. The instrument cluster can be removed but pushing a length of coat hanger wire with right angle turn on its end between the the cluster and the dashboard surround. Turn the coat hanger to hook behind the cluster and pull forward to remove it. Try several points around the cluster. It is best to disconnect the speedo drive cable to withdraw the cluster (after electrical connections have been disconnected. check that the speedo cable is secure to the back of the instruments. If you remove the cluster completely follow the path of the speedo cable. If you have to replace the cable, tying a length of string to the speedo cable end first and posting the string down the cable path will help the re-installation enormously. Simply pull the string whilst reinstalling the instrument cluster until the end of the speedo can be got hold of. Refit the speedo cable to the transmission only after the instrument cluster is back in place.

I have a 2003 vw golf. the speedo is not working at all. found speedo sensor broken and have replaced. also drive looks to be intact and doesn't turn. also tied with this is the fuel gauge fluctuates any...


if you replaced the speedo sensor and gear, the problem is the gear that drives the speedo gear. it is on the differential and is only replaceable by removing and disassembling transmission. this is somewhat common on vw's. the only other possibility is the wiring but i'd say its about a 95% chance you have a bad drive gear on the differential.

The speedometer is not working on my 1995 isuzu rodeo 2 wheel drive


I think its cable driven (not electronic) with car on flat/safe ground crawl under and remove speedo cable from rear of gear box and try to quickly turn the inner cable (both ways) while someone watches the speedo for any action, if nothing happening remove complete cable-look for break in inner cable/replace. if needle did flicker then check for worn/broken gear in speedo head/ gearbox (rare), 9 times out of 10 cable broke.
