Speedometer maybe a seperate issue, but it sounds like your coolant temp sensor isn't working on the smell of gas. If that is happening, you can look at the back of the tail pipe to see if it is black if so, the sensor should be tested, and replaced as necessary. Speedometer could be a (VSS) vehicle speed sensor failing.

2007 equinox Error code p0496 & p0420 are both coming up AND my speedometer and gas gauge and temp gauge started going crazy after these codes came up. I have only had this car 10 days.


These codes have nothing to do with instrument cluster !
DTC P0420: Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 1 , Catalytic coverter is bad ,
DTC P0496: Evaporative Emission System Flow During Non-Purge
Evap emissions purge solenoid is bad more then likely . Your best bet , take it back to where you got it .

I have a d15b automatic transmission on my 94 honda sedan my car struggles to make its gear changes no matter how much I press the gas pedal the rpm will go crazy my speedometer will show im going at 60...


check the colour of the transmission oil. IT should be a bright cherry red . If not have it changed as that may be the burning smell.. Have a pressure test done to check for internal faults . Clean the oil filter and have a band and clutch pack adjustment done while the pan is off. Run fault codes as the fault may be from a bad TCM unit not allowing correct change times.

Have to put coolant in all the time , no leaks visible, now would not crank


Run a compression test, sounds like a blown head gasket, warpped/cracked cylinder head. Coolant is going through the combustion chamber out the exhaust and into the crankcase/ oil.

Speedometer of 2003 dodge neon does not work and gas gauge is jumpy. replaced 2 input and output vss sensors and still won't work. no codes show on scanner


some of these have had problems with the dash assembly causing alot of problems with gauges and lights and speedometers.if there are no codes in the computer and weren`t any before you replaced the vss sensors then you spent money you didn`t need to.

MY CAPRICE IS BURNING GAS LIKE CRAZY AND THERE MUST BE A LEAK BECAUSE EVERY TIME I FEEL UP I CAN SMELL GAS BUT THERE'S NO SPOT ON THE GROUND IN MY DRIVE WAY .HOW CAN I DETECT WERE THE LEAK IS


The gas is most likely leaking out of the top of the tank from the fuel pump. The gasket tends to go bad in the earlier caprices. Hope this helps!

Gas leak


If the truck is running fine ,I would lean more towards your fuel tank it may have rusted out on you.
