  • speedo broken heres my situation..c33 laurel...annnd the speedo doesnt work..does anyone know if swapping the tranny to a 5 speed tranny will fix the prob? 5 speed fresh out of an r32...

    but until then, i was wondering...i think ive seen a turbo timer that shows your km/h..anyone know what type this is? what else could i get to temporarily show me the speed of which i am going?

    most likely your speedometer cable is just disconnected. That happens alot on old cars. especially toyotas and nissans.

      Well im not sure if you have an sr20det or not, but ill assume you do.

      the sr20det tranny does not utilize cable type speedo/ it uses a speed sensor, in most cases you may have to change the speed sensor located at the passenger side on the tranny, i've had a lot of customers come in for the same problem, the gear on the speed sensor is made out of plastic it becomes rounded after a period of time, i guess is what we call wear and tear, how ever it is common for it to go out, i suggest after the change use quality tranny oil, i always recomend mobil synthetic or red line oil.
