Speedometer works intermittently


It is most likely the speed sensor in the transmission.

Kicks really hard when shifting from park to drive... but not from park to reverse, neut., 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. speedometer won't work. won't shift outta low gear, just revs up like it's in neutral.


sounds to me like the vss (vehicle speed sensor) isnt working...its on the passanger side of the car on the top of the transmission..(just above where the right side axle is installed) youll see a 2 wire connector...sometimes they come unlpugged and when that happens no speedometer=no shifting because it doesnt know that its in motion,therefore doesnt know when or too shift..,

Odometer and speedometer problems


You need to check the speed sensor in your rear differential. It should be held in with one 10mm bolt and then you can pull it out of the housing. You will probably find some metal on the end of it, because it is magnetic. This is due to wear in the differential. If you clean the metal residue off of the sensor and re-install it should clear up the problem. While you are there, it would be a good time to check the fluid in the differential as well.
