look for a cable going into the top of the firewall on the drivers side of the car. make sure you arent looking at the throttle/clutch cables.

thanks now one quick question, is there like a color to this cable? n does it run just as a single cable?

Usually black, and its 2 pieces that join near the firewall in a coupler

ok sounds great does the speedometer have anything to do with engine stalling? cuz wen i drive it sometimes sounds like it stalls a bit before shifting gears?

Sounds like a bad vehicle speed sensor, not a speedometer cable.
