Does it mean I need to replace my speedometer? Nissan dealer told me after replacing the speed sensor on the transmission that now I needed to replace my speedometer which is working perfectly fine and never skips/ jumps etc- they want to charge me $650 for this, they did not look at my speedometer, the mechanic just keeps saying that since the code for P0500 speed sensor came back on 2 weeks after replacing the speed sensor that it must be the speedometer.
I feel like I'm getting swindled, something sounds off. I don't know what to do. The original problem was that the car was chugging and the check engine light was coming on for a speed sensor code po500. I have taken it to 3 different mechanics and no one knows what is going on. When the car chugs it feels like my car is running out of gas, but there's a full tank.
I replaced fuel filter, battery, mass airflow sensor, speed sensor and new rotor/caps, oil change and still nothing is working. I am out tons of money. Every mechanic said I needed to reflash my ECU but when I took it to Nissan they said there was no computer update for my year to reflash it with and that the ECU looked fine. One mechanic said it looked like the current to the speed sensor was going in but nothing was coming out when he did a diagnostic. I need some type of help.
