1997 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 113500 miles
My speedometer has been acting erratically for about 6 months now. It started by jumping around occasionally at speeds above 40 mph but the speed indicator remained pretty close to accurate. Lately, it has been jumping around at all speeds and is basically worthless. When the problem really started getting bad, the cruise also quit working and I started experiencing minor shifting problems. More than one person told me I needed to replace my speed sensor. That has now been done with no effect on any of my problems. Having learned to judge my speed pretty well by using the Tach, I could live without the speedometer but the cruise is a must. One note about the cruise. When it was working, it would disengage any time I hit the slightest bump in the road and had started to become a major nuisance. Any suggestions on how to fix either of these these issues?
have the same problem?
