This a.m started up, got going. Heard screeching. Its un the dash. Speedometer runs fine, then bounces over to aboutf 80 to 100 for boutfive sexonds, tgen bk to 55 or 60. Loud spinning in the speeso window.
Is there potential disaster here or just gears in head behind dash warming up. It was cold this morninf in nm. Terrible time to be needing something being thanksgiving
Should be just a noisy PITA but nothing that will cause the car to be stopping
Hope it gets better when it warms up in your cabin
You can disconnect the speedo cable at the trans—- just unscrew it but you will have no speedo reading so a bit of a trade off to be less noisy
You can judge your speed— by the other cars around you —unless you are on the road alone
There is a phone app that will tell you your cars speed from a satellite connection if that could be of any help to you
Google —-GPS speedometer app ——for the type of phone you have if needed
Not to concerned w speed. Just if damage is imiinwnt
The speedometer might stop working at some point —but that is about all that will happen— carry on
Happy a Turkey Day
I recommend disconnecting the speedo cable at the back of the gauge pod. You risk getting dirt into the speedo gear if you disconnect at the trans.
Do i neee to remove dash for that?
Take the lower dash panel off and reach up.
