Just got a 98 Camry XLE V6 with just under 200k miles (it was free). At about 45 mph (indicated) the speedo is accurate. When the speedo shows 57 it's really going 65 (GPS). 60 is actually about 70. The higher the indicated speed the more it's off. However below 45 the speedo indicates HIGHER than actual speed. 25mph on the speedo is really only about 20. It's really weird. I've had speedos that were a little off before but not nearly this much and they were off consistantly in the same dir

I bought an 89 F150 with the 4.9 liter straight 6 2WD. It had a bad slave cylender. I replaced that which I have done several times on other vehicles. When I picked the vehicle up it was stuck in gear and would not come out but started and registered on the speedo just fine with the driveline removed. Now that the slave cylender is fixed i still cannot get it to come out of gear as the shifter is stuck and as soon as i let the clutch pedal out it stalls immediately...Any suggestions? bad tranny?
