My car Service Engine Soon light came on and the speedometer stoped working. The faulty component turned out to be the ECM. Which from what the mechanic said is a common failure item for these cars. The placement of the sensor combined with the heat over time wore it down and caused the failure.
When it happen i have to put the car in neutral keeping it from stopping
