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.
hey all thanks for the replies, i should be getting the car tomorrow... and i may just put it on the road sooner than expected...
my 94 is still getting painted it has been at the shop for like 5 weeks... but i was planning on taking it off the road in late october-early november (we're almost there!!!)
so odds are good that i'll be posting here over the weekend
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???)
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
