1997 Honda Accord, 4 cyclinder, when the car is started, the speedometer goes to 20mph without the car even moving. Nothing changes even when car is moving. I have replaced the VSS sensor and still the same issue. I have tested the Transmission speed sensor and that works fine. Also the cruise control does not work and there is NO Check Engine. light. Other than the 2 sensors I have checked are there others ?

Any suggestions??

I live in the western Maryland mountains and we have had a lot of icy road conditions this winter My adult son slid into curbs one too many times. Had to have 4 new tires and front end alignment. The mechanic said the front right spindle needed to be replaced. They were looking into purchasing part from a junk yard. Do you have an approximate repair cost for this please? Thank you very much for your time.
It just turns over a faint smell of gas when trying to start
The CEL came on and it started doing the jerking and sputtering and then died. I got it started again and drove about 6 mi. at 60 mph and then I started losing power and it died again . I got it started one more time and went about a quarter mile and it did the same thing again and now it wont start at all. I have replaced the distributor and ignition switch and still no progress
When I first start car while still in park it idols funny it goes up and down mostly til it warms up. And I’m needing breaks which I’m changing tiday
recently the car has been not starting i put key in it turns and all the lights radio etc come on then i go to start it and nothing happens. if i turn key over or apply a different amount of pressuer it starts sometimes it fires right up what could be causing this. It just stareted doing it. at first i thought battery then starter but it has something to do with the key and the ignition
I just have a short in the wiring system in there and I need to know where they go and just in case I get something mixed up or confused? Thank you
Recently my battery needed to be replaced. I went to the auto store and got a new battery. Connected it to my car and realized that the pole were switched and I connected the wrong poles. Now that I replaced that battery with the correct one no lights come on in my car.
First time
Filled tank 3 days ago and have driven every day - guage has not moved.
Whenever the ball joint on the driver side front tire breaks.
all the bolts are off, i removed the bolts off the shroud, pulled, tugged twisted and can not get to un hook from that cover or move around the cover, how is the world does this thing come off???
I was driving home one day on the highway. When i was approaching traffic i pressed in the clutch to downshift the car cut off. I pull over and the cars starts again. I go on about half a mile and i hear a slight clunk and it cut off again. When i pulled over and tried to start it it sounded like a power drill running. I get it towed did my research and it seemed like the timing. I checked the distributor rotor it didn't rotate but my camshaft is moving. The car has a f22b2 which is an interference engine.
Full tank of gas and low fuel sensor comes on going off at intervals during usage also gas gauge reads full after fill up but then drops off very quickly till it reads empty when there is still half a tank of gas
Car died,cranks but no start,oil in plugs,no spark after cleaned oil & no wipers or turn signals.
