I had a similar problem with my 1995 Dodge Intrepid that I used to have. What happened was that moisture had gotten onto one or more of the speed sensors and had shortened it out, and so it stood at zero for a while.

I could be wrong on this, but I *believe* the VSS is located on top, around the bottom of the steering column.

VSS is in the tail snout at the rear of the tranny.

Some pick-ups had a cable drive that ran a VSS in the speedometer head, but none of the 91-96 B-bodies had that style.

Yep, all L05's came with the 3.42 gear from it's introduction in 1989, until the final year for the L05 in the 9C1, which was 1993.

hey i have searched the forum a bit, but i remember reading about someone putting the fuelpump from an LT1 car in their LO5 tank to boost fuel pressure... well after about 5 mins total running time on my winter beater the fuel pump went... i tested it and it seems to be the pump.. (wouldn't you guess with a full tank of gas???)
thanks
jonathan
Ps also if there is an easier way to remedy this other than dropping the tank i am all ears ;)

Hey i replaced the fuel pump, funny thing is the old one started working after we dropped the tank, just needed to be hit a few times... i replaced it anyway, new pump, strainer, and fuel filter came to around $65 at auto zone. i don't know what i would do if we didn't have a lift in the farm shop ;)
