    Could be the left rear speed sensor. All of the speed info the car uses other than for abs comes form the left rear wheel. Might help to clean, its easy to get at. I cleaned mine hoping I didn't have a bad EBTCM.

    Have the car "stall" on the train tracks with an oncoming train. Or hit the "city" and leave the keys in the ignition.

    Re: Speedometer problem

    You can get a used one on ebay or junk yard. Try to get one that's pretty much close to the miles on your car. Also, I don't think it's needs any reprogramming, just plug and play.

    I had replaced mine few years ago when the temp gauge was acting up and it was just straight forward swap.

    kaustein, you act like a little boy who got his heart broken by this car and now the only way you can get revenge is to piss on this forum. It's about time you go piss on someone else's forum.

    Well put, it seems to me he gets some kind of satisfaction out continually s***ing on anybody and everybody who owns one. Obviously he knows next to nothing about fixing anything if that's his mind frame. I feel sorry to anyone's who knows him personally, which like all of us here they probably can't stand his guts either.
