I would make sure they are bad before throwing more parts at it. A scan tool will verify the speed sensor.

The tach may be a connection either at the connector behind the dash or at the pcm. You need to verify part failures before throwing parts at it.

Great thank you, I have a scan tool for my laptop that plugs into the obd port, however it is a minidisk? Software question I guess are you familiar with minidisk for a laptop. I think its obsolete data material
