How do I derestric the top speed limiter


Probably you will need to get a ECU remap done to overwrite the restrictive map as you don't specify the make and model to give a better answer

Tip

Loss in engine power, sluggish responses, low top speed, etc.


If your car has
  1. Poor fuel responses
  2. Lost its "power"
  3. Low RPM
  4. Lower top speed
  5. Burns a lot of fuel
Then it could be because of carbon build-ups in your engine's combustion chamber. This is left behind with unburned fuel. It causes poor acceleration, a loss in power, lower top speed, and burns more fuel than it really has too. Not to mention causes smoke belching.

The best way to get rid of that would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the combustion chamber. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, save fuel, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engine overhauled (overhaul could trigger "loose compression").

Lacks speed just had it serviced and was told speed dial was loose they tightened it up but now dial goes right past top speed but is still very slow apart from the odd speed now and again...


just a guess but it sounds like a Crank Position Sensor, or a Speed Sensor. Always include vehicle make, model & year. Include any strange information: (sounds, noises, recent performance info. for a better answer when asking a question about your vehicle.

Where is the speed sensor located


Vehicle Speed Senor (VSS) is on top of the transmission.
The cable will lead to the firewall.

Better in-dash GPS unit will need access to VSS.
If you are live is area without tunnel or high rise building that you may not to use VSS hookup.

Any tricks to changing the slave cylinder on a '87 Pontiac Fiero GT with the 2.8L engine, 5-speed?


One thing is to purchase a stopper for the top line and to top off the reservoir of the clutch side so when you get it done it is nearly full.

LOOSEN the line before taking the unit off the car as this will anchor the unit making the lines easier to remove.
GET a LINE WRENCH - this is a wrench you will use on other projects and is a MUST for a car this old. Be sure it fits your line before beginning.

Once the unit is on - check the line for tightness. -Open the bleeder and let it set. Have someone in the car to help - have them push the clutch in ONCE - the first time - then release the bleeder -- watch to make sure it doesn't spray you in the face.
Once you loosen then tighten the bleeder have the person pump the peddle 3 times - repeat the bleeding until the clutch is operating as it should - the same or better than before.
TOP OFF the FLUID - close and enjoy.

you have a bad head gasket or a cracked head better off to replace engine with a lower mileage motor its better to do and maybe cheaper.the reason i say this is because when you rebuild the top end the lower end becomes the next victim when put up against a newly rebuilt top end.
