Not to sound condescending, but have you checked to see if you are low on transmission fluid?

95 honda accord speedometer works some times goes on and off but the real problem is when driving from a dead stop car takes off fine but when it switches gears losses power(torque) and does not switch...


Sounds like the sending unit to the speedometer is failing. This causes the speedometer to jump around and confuses the heck out of the electronics that controls your automatic transmission.

Speedometer does not work. I have a 95 Rodeo, 3.2 six cylinder, 4X4, I replaced the speed sensor in the rear and still not working...Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Take out the speedometer gear and hook it to a cordless dril (electric drills might spin it too fast). Turn the ignition to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Have someone watch the speedometer from inside the vehicle as you spin it.

If the speedometer gauge works and stays constant, then you know your problem is with the drive gear or the worm gear on the inside of the transmission.

If it doesn't work, then you know that there is an electrical issue with the speed sensor circuit or something in the gauge cluster is broken.

I had a problem in my Explorer with the speedometer gauge jumping around (and that really messes with teh 4WD system). I chased it for a couple of weeks only to find out that the nut that secures the worm gear for the speedometer in the transmission was loose and devoured the drive gear.

1997 Toyota Camry,the transmission is not shifting right. It jumps up and down in drive and the speedometer sporadic


it is not the gauge cluster or the speed sensor. I have the same problem on the same car and it is getting much worse sense letting others drive it" for a short time. when the transmission slips I put the petal to the floor a few times and it will fall into passing gear, and I am good till I stop racing and try to contiue a set speed. at the time it slips the speedometer goes to zero and then jumps as it tries to get a gear. I have gone through all the wiring and it seems to be ok for what it is " **** but working". I took the computer apart and inspected for any visible evidence of a problem and found none. but I do suspect it to be the problem. I am going to ohm test all external solenoids tomorror morning before buying computer. please let me know what fixed you car if you become aware of my repost to your very old add. or if you have put the car aside for awhile and are ready to fix it once I find the problem with this one this week e-mail me at donaldwilhite@ymail.com.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.
