If it used the mechanical speed cable. Check the speedometer cable attachment at the speedometer in the instrument panel. Check the speedometer cable and speedometer sending unit assembly on the transmission.
as far as the fuel gauge i would look at the sending unit which is on top of the gas tank. and parts of it are inside of the tank also. as far as the speedo not working, i wouold look at the speed sensor which is mounted on the right side of the transfer case/ 4x4 unit. the sensor is probably ng or the gear is stripped out.
NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!
Follow the speedometer cable from the firewall, down to the transmission. It should bolt in the transmission, remove the cable from the transmission, and turn the gear to check to see if speedometer is working, if not, it's most like the speedometer head unit.
with the speedometer it could be a bad sending unit located on the left side of the transmission near the cv axle. or that the guage is faulty, or a loose connection. your transmission is a AX4N Metric if it's an automatic. the sending unit is a dealer only item and costs about 60 dollars it is not cable driven but has an electrical harness to it. as far as the hard steering it could be that your power steering pump is bad, you have a blockage in your rack and pinion unit, or there is air in the system
in newer model vehicles the speedometer is not cable operated but is electronically controled so either there is a loose connection going to the sending unit located on the transmission, a faulty sending unit itself, or the speedometer cluster in the dash is the problem. check the connection on the sending unit look for corrossion or a broken connector. if this is not the problem, take it to a shop and have a mechanic replace the sending unit or speedometer cluster.
