Transmissions are tricky, 1991 is an older vehicle so your best bet is to take it to a tranny specialist. Some solutions you put in the tranny case do help a little but its not a long term fix. Be prepared tranny repairs run from 600.00 to 1800.00 on average and on a 91 it may not be worth it.

What is the problem if the odometer of my 1991 Plymouth Acclaim does not work and I have replaced my gauge cluster Assembly multiple times and each time my odometer still does not work.

According to my findings your odometer is electrical and has a distance sensor down by the starter. Check the connections at that point for loose or corroded contacts. If you know how to use a VOM you can check the sensor also. But from the sound of it, being you've replaced the cluster before, if the connections are good at the sensor and its not working I'd check the fuses and then buy a new sensor.

My 1991 plymouth acclaim went dead and won't start. I dont't have fire to the distributor?

I had the same problem with my 1991 Plymouth Acclaim 3.0 liter engine. Check to see if your SBEC (computer located next to car battery) has gone out. Replacing it should solve your problem.

How to fix my odometer in 1991 plymouth acclaim

If the speedometer is working but not the odometer it's in the speedometer it's self. replacing the speedometer cluster is the easiest their available on ebay or your local salvage yard.
what happens is the trip odometer wears and sticks, theres a small motor on a circuit board with a plastic sun gear, inside the speedometer housing. it drives both the odometer and the trip odo
the teeth strip off the sun gear and odometer stops.

Ok. When this happens to you your gears are not shifting over. What i mean by that is your clutch may be off a little. I would take this to a mechanic as soon as possible.  Hope this helps.

Speedometer won't work

Most likely cause is the vehicle speed sensor located on right side of the trans near the right axle.
