My 2000 Saturn LW2 had an error code for the front oxygen sensor and my speedometer stopped working. How would I be able to fix my speedometer before I replace my oxygen sensor, so I know its not the

Well, a broken speedometer can mean typically one of two things.

First, the actual gauge could be broken. If this is the case, it may be possible to replace just the gauge if you order an OE gauge, but more commonly, the cluster is a complete assembly and must be replaced all at once. The cluster itself, depending on complication may be rather expensive, but the real cost comes in the labor of disassembling the dash to get at the cluster.

The second option is that your vehicle speed sensor is bad or there is a problem on the line to the gauge. This can usually be acquired for a reasonable cost. The problem is in getting to it. It should be either mounted on the transmission case or the rear differential, but sometimes it can be almost inside the transmission and take a considerable amount of time to get to.

Transmission making noise and speedodometer quit, my 1995 corolla the speed odometer quit, the transmission starting making noise and went out of gear and back, is my tranmission broken and or repairable,...

The slipping could be low fluid. If you have an automatic, You didn't mention the type transmission, check the fluid and add if needed. If you have a standard you need to get to the check plug under the vehicle. You check that level by removing the plug and sticking your finger in the hole. The fluid should be to up to the bottom of the check hole. The transmission is most likely repairable and cost will depend on whether it is a Manual or Automatic and what actually needs to be repaired. This could be a simple adjustment to the bands and solenoids in the transmission or a clutch issue but you won't know till you take it to a shop. The speedometer could be a broken cable or broken speed sensor, both are repairable and actually don't cost that much. Another possibility is the speedometer itself having a broken spring inside.

I have a broken head gasket and was wondering what the average cost was and was wondering if it would be cheaper to do it myself or send it to one

If you can do it your self it would of course be cheaper. They aren't that bad. I would make sure you have the heads shaved and do a valve job. The average cost is around 700.00 if you didn;t crack the heads. I have seen it go as high as 1200.00 at a shop. I hope this helps please leave a comment.

Hi Tracy:

You don't say whether the speedometer has also stopped working. If it is still working, then it's an internal problem in the speedometer unit which will likely need to be replaced.

If the speedometer has also stopped, it's often the speedometer cable that has failed; have the cable checked (it could come out of its socket at either end, or be broken). This is a much less costly repair than replacing the speedometer unit.

Often the old cable can be pulled from the sleeve, leaving the sleeve in place, and a new one pushed into the old sleeve to replace the defective cable.

Let us know any additional information.

Speedometer quit working

There is no Speedometer cable on a 2002 Jetta. You have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) I would have someone check the codes on it and see if the VSS is the problem.
