If this problem raised a trouble code light indicating a fault code in the gear box, it is most likely a defective solenoid in the transmission and will require a service tech to repair and diagnose. This problem is not repairable by most people without the proper tools and diagnostic scan readers.

Speedometer and odometer not working


I would look at the ignition switch and the neutral safety switch for voltage. It could be the ignition switch is worn out and not making contact with all of the circuits. The neutral safety switch would be affected by moving the shifter.

I have a 1994 chevy Cheyenne 1500 2wd and I have a hard vibration once I reach between 55-70. If I push the gas pedal a little harder or let off of it it goes away. Don't know what it is could u plz...


I presume that is miles per hour. If the vibration is felt in the steering wheel, the problem is probably in the front wheels. If the vibration is felt in the seat, check the rear wheels. To check the rear wheels, if it is not posi traction, just jack up one wheel at a time and bring the speed up to half the odometer reading (one wheel turns twice as fast as two wheels). To check the front wheels just rotate to the rear one wheel at a time.

Also check for bent rims and defective universal joints.

My parking brake is froozen,lights brakes on always illuminated ;how can i solve this problem? my car is not runing sice 5 years.the engine is ok the gear box is ok .all is ok except tthe parking brake...


if your back brakes are stuck on then jack up back end remove wheels take of parking brake first though and hit drums with hammer or if it has discs remove caliper by removeing two bolts on back of caliper and remove pads use large pliers or grips to squeeze in the 2 pistons then loosely asemble and put on park brake and see if the brakes lock on again if so repeat and try again untill they are free and dont leave a car parked for a long time with park brake on use blocks under wheels or they will seize

Unknown Vibration


motor mounts can be changed without pulling the motor the load percent change that the other guy posted is normal and a vaccum leak would cause the engine idle to wander when in neutral. if you need info on how to change mounts let me know

Vibration in front end


It is likely both your track bar and the lack of a steering gear box stabilizer. The bushings on your stock track bar can be replaced with polyeurethane or metal bushings which will help curb the problem.
The steering stabilizer attaches to your steering gear box and your frame allowing the steering to be more stable. I have put both on my truck and it drives like a caddy now as a result. If I had to choose between the two items, my money would go to the steering stabilizer first. I believe I bought mine here:

Loud vibration on 2005 jeep liberty when under load.


Sounds a lot like a wheel balance problem, Does vibration go away over 55? In checking driveshaft joints...If you looked at them with the vehicle in park with the wheels on the ground, the shaft is "loaded" and cannot be correctly checked. To do this properly, vehicle should be in neutral with both rear wheels off the ground. Sometimes a joint can appear to be tight but still be bad. Check for traces of powdered rust around the rubber boots right where the end caps meet the cross on the inside. Any rust there indicates lack of grease and the likelyhood that the joint is frozen.
Check both balance and joints. Good luck.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
