Would a 4.88 ring and pinion gear lower my speed too low for street driving for my '93 chevy s-10 2.8 engine 2 WD w/a 5 speed manual transmission?


normal street diff ratios are in the 3:1 or 3.5: ratios as these give best performance speed and economy
fitting that ratio will give a lower top speed and may affect the economy as it makes the engine seem more powerful so less throttle is need for take off
it also will have higher rpms at your normal driving speed
(example -- normal ratio --60 mph 3000 rpms new ratio 60 mph-- 3250 rpms )
the speedo reading will be out as well enough to get into trouble with speed cameras
if you are not a led foot and take you time in traffic it will be just a bit slower
the only real way is to try it and see if you like the result

Advise Trans or engine problem ?


This is more than likely in your transmission, if your engine revved to 4000rpm and your speed did not increase. Is this a manual or automatic transmission. If the vehicle is newer, within the last 10 years, you could probably have the controller for the transmission plugged in and get the codes for the problem.

Have an fx45.Should the tach read 25-3000 ROMs when moving at 75mph? Auto tranny seems like it should be in higher gear.


there is not info to be able to give a definite answer
to work it out
you have top know the diff ratio, wheel tyre circumference to be able to work from rpms of the engine to road speed
However as a pointer, most cars will be around 3200 rpms at 60mph as this will be direct drive and od causes a drop in rpms
Being an automatic find yourself a good section of low traffic road and start from stop slowly increase the rpms and watch the rpms. keeping the accelerator steady you will see when the auto changes by a drop in rpms. slowly increase road sped until you see the next drop in rpms and so on. Over drive normally comes in around 55 mph or around 3000rpms
I would think that it is working because 3500rpms at 75mph is reasonable rpms to be expected. If it wasn't working I would expect the rpms to be around 3800 to 4000.at 75mph

Loss of engine power/transmission 2001 chevy tahoe over 65 mph


Sound's as though a previous owner installed a speed governor so that the engine would not exceed the nationwide 55-65 mph speed limit average. This most likely was a company owned vehicle or owned by someone concerned about speeding ticket's or excessive speed by a teenage driver. It can be uninstalled by an experienced mechanic. Unless this poses a problem while driving on an interstate, you may wish to leave it as is.

91 honda accord between 50 and 55 it feels like the transmission shifts up and down conststantly but the rpm only moves from 2100 rpm to 2000 rpm but over or under that speed it runs fine.


Your transmission is probably jumping in and out of "torque converter lockup". The lockup is the most efficient mode because 100% of the power from the engine goes to the wheels and is not lost in the torque converter. It only goes into lockup at higher speeds, but will jump out if the computer senses it needs more power (at the higher engine RPMs) to maintain or increase your speed. I recommend either going faster or slower if this is bothering you. :-)

If the rpms are going up and your speed is not increasing your transmisson is slipping.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
