1999 Mercury Cougar 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
I was driving on the interstate going about 70 and my speedometer spiked all the up and then went to zero. It stopped working. RPM gauge runs good and the rest of the instruments are working no problem. When this happened I felt something vibrate on the gas pedal when I accelerate. The next day I noticed it was shifting hard when it changed gears and now it won't change out of gear after 35-40MPH.
I recently had my oil changed and fluids topped off and they mentionied my transmission fluid was dirty looking but nothing else. I also had new tires put on at the same time.
Just not sure if this is transmission related or electrical. Any help in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
