I have a 2000 Saturn Ls.. I was driving it one day and it began to start Jerking and my speed decrease and my speedometer needle was jumping up and down. I took my car to Amcco and they told me it was sensors. I have change all speed sensor, inculding the wheel sensor because my car does not have Abs. Now my car is stuck in first gear, needle will not move and I don't know if its an electrical problem or if I should replace my transmission?

SOURCE: 1996 saturn sl1 transmission slips in 3 and 4 gears.

The fluid and speed sensor did not really do anything to solve your slipping problem. If it slipped before it could be that there are chips/breaks in the teeth on the gears or it could be that the clutch is not connecting when it gets into higher gears. May need a new tranny or clutch.

It is part of the bearing hub assembly.Very have to do without air tools,If setting multiple abs/tc code (wheel speed sensors) probably abs electronic module or chaffed wires on drivers side at ac lines by air box.Have big problems with this and probably will come back.

code 50 relates strictly to the upstream sensor on bank 2. Causes are bad sensor, wiring, or engine control module. I would check the wire for any damage or loose connection. If none, I would replace that sensor and only that sensor. You can do it yourself if you have a set of metric deep sockets. The parts store should have a diagram to show you where the sensor is. I believe bank 2 is near the firewall and sensor 1 is just below the exhaust manifold (before the cat. converter). More questions, let me know.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much, that narrows my search down, I have checked for loose connections etc. It sounds like the one sensor. Much appreciated."

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin

I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph

The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

Crawl underneath and look for the speedometer cable and ensure it is securely fastened. Also is you engine service light on? If it is most autozones will hook up and tell you if the speed sensors needs replacement.

Saturn won't start

if you have a way to charge your battery or jump start your car, do so and if it starts head over to autozone, advance auto, or Oreily auto parts and have your charging system and belts checked for free, you may need an alternator, a belt, or a battery
