speedo pumped full of oil

Recommended Posts

82 turbo, was a 3 speed auto when problem was created. whether the vent was plugged or something doesnt matter its in the garbage in lou of my 5 speed but anyhow my speedo is full of atf, and reads way off.

if i clean it out is my oily speedo cable going to oil it up again? has this happened to anyone else. i have another cable in another car but thats a pain in the ass

It's happened to me before, and I think it dripped on my ecu, causing it freak out above ~4500 rpm. [edit: had to clean the connector block terminals really good, that's when I discovered the oil]


I replaced the speedo cog and the problem went away. Maybe you just need to make sure the o-ring seal is good.


Hope this helps...
