Is your speedometer working?

Max Christensen

gauges flutter when starting and then proceed to be normal, odo light flashes, when driving the tranny shifts hard enough down to throw me forward.

Check engine light on?


Take it to a transmission shop it may just be a speed sensor.

Max Christensen

no check engine light on, starts just fine and engine runs just fine
