When accelerating the gas
It happened after I installed an aftermarket radio and I didn't have enough to buy the harness adapter so I straight wired the radio and the two wires that control the dimmer switch and lights in the dash touched the ground wire and my speedometer went from zero to three then back to zero. Now when I drive it just shows zero mph and its not recording mileage either. Also my light in the dash work when I turn on my headlights but the dimmer switch doesn't dim or brighten the lights in the dash the only thing it does is turn on the light in the top if the car if the switch is pushed all the way up. Please give some advice because I hate driving and don't know how fast I'm going.
But when I took it out to test it to see how it felt after that I notice it didnt had the same power as before I change the plugs and it took longer to shift... So my question is what could of cause that problem? Or how can I fix it?

Have that same the problem and this not 90 caprice but a 1986
It was rebuilt 25K ago. It does not slip or grind.
It will start if it has been in the garage or if it's above 32 degrees. I was told to replace the coolant temp sensor because when they go bad they read -40 degrees & dump to much fuel into the motor causing it to flood. What else could be the issue causing it to not start. 92 caprice wagon 5.0L
I can drive for about 45 min to a hour then when I exit and hit the gas it hesitates. It feels like there's to much gas when it's down shifting it drives excellent besides that any help would be much appreciated
I already replace temp.sensor and fan relays. They work fine as long as the heat or air is on.
i was told i needed it fix before my next oil change
It will not move even when pushing on gas just change 4 file pumps
you can put it in drive and go but wen it get to second gear going into 3rd it wont go into it unless you press on d gas hard
I recently bought the car. But it had sat up for 7 years prior to me buying it. The car ran perfect at first. Then it I was on the expressway driving about 60mph when it suddenly slowed down to 30mph. Drive it back home, replaced the fuel pump, and filter. Now when we try to start the car up, the throttle body catches fire when it starts up. Help please....Also replaced were the starter, cap, rotor,and plugs.
Old motor works, but runs slow (and only on high). Replaced the motor and now have full power, but inside spindle won't turn, so wipers only go up 4". Put old motor back on and spindle turns fine and wipers go all the way up (super slow). Second motor is an exact match for my vehicle. What could be wrong?
The coolant runs out the radiator back into the coolant jug then i have to wait a while for it to cool back down and the oil light stay on but it is full of good oil
