Sound like your Speed vehicle sensor went bad and you need to change it with anther one and its Electronic Sensor not cable because cable ones are not used anymore. And the dealership will charge a lot of money while just Mechanic can do this for you. The sens is located on the transmission and it wont take long to replace it . Good luck

Hi, how do i register for replace new battery bmw 2007 525i

If you are talking about getting it replaced under warranty, you need to take the car to your dealership and they will have to test it with the factory battery tester. I work at a GM dealership and when we warranty batteries, our tester sometimes needs to charge the batteries for up to 4 hours before it will determine if a battery is good or bad. Just thought you should know that last part in case you were planning on waiting for a quick replacement.

I have just been charged $159.60 for a fuel filter for 2007 Toyota Corolla. Is this justified

the dealer will mark up the product about 300 times the cost. I'm sorry to tell you. Yes, they will charge that much. An auto parts store would have sold it to you at one third the price. I'm so sorry I could not do that job for you. Would have charged a cup of coffee and the part. the dealership makes the money to stay in business off of the parts and labor, not by selling cars. I know 2 owners of car dealerships here in New Orleans. I won't take my car there to get fixed. Please, next time ask your friends about their mechanic, and then talk to them before any work is done.

My 1984 toyota corolla needs a new speedometer cable installed.

Removal & Installation The slightest bind in the speedometer cable can cause unpredictable behavior in the cruise control system. If the cruise control exhibits intermittent surging or loss of set speed symptoms, check the speedometer cable first
  1. Follow the appropriate procedure given previously for removal of the instrument cluster. The cluster need not be fully removed, but only loosened to the point of being able to disconnect the speedometer cable.
  2. Disconnect the speedometer cable and check that any retaining clamps or clips between the dash and the firewall are released.
  3. Safely raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands.
  4. Disconnect the cable fitting at the transmission or transaxle and lift the cable and case away from the transmission or transaxle.
  5. Follow the cable back to the firewall, releasing any clips or retainers.
  6. From inside the vehicle, work the speedometer cable through the grommet in the firewall into the engine compartment. It may be necessary to pop the grommet out of the firewall and transfer it to the new cable.
  7. When reinstalling, track the new cable into position, remembering to attach the grommet to the firewall securely. Make absolutely certain that the cable is not kinked, or routed near hot or moving parts. All curves in the cable should be very gentle and not located near the ends. Note the speedometer cable inside the housing must be lubricated with the proper lubricant before installing it to the vehicle.
  8. Attach any retaining clips, brackets or retainers, beginning from the middle of the cable and working towards each end.
  9. Attach the cable to the transmission or transaxle. Remember that the cable has a formed, square end on it; this shaped end must fit into a matching hole in the transmission or transaxle mount. Don't try to force the cable collar (screw fitting) into place if the cable isn't seated properly.
  10. Inside the vehicle, hold the other end of the cable with your fingers or a pair of tapered-nose pliers. Gently attempt to turn the cable; if it's properly seated at the other end, the cable will NOT turn more than about 1/4 turn. If the cable turns freely, the other end is not correctly seated.
  11. Lower the vehicle to the ground.
  12. Attach the speedometer cable to the instrument cluster, again paying close attention to the fit of the square-cut end into the square hole. Don't force the cable retainer.
  13. Reinstall the instrument cluster following procedures outlined previously. Road test the vehicle for proper operation.

Leaking transition fluid from under dash on to break peddles. i think from the speedometer cable

they adapter that the speedo cable attaches to on the transmission is defective, this allows fluid to go up the turning cabe and get on the floor, replace the speedometer cable adapter at the trans.
