Speedometer doesn't work, transmission hesistant shifting. by [email protected]
I had a sensor replaced. I still have the same problem. Don't know if it was the speed sensor. Is the speed sensor inside the transmission?

I want to get some use out of them around town and in the rain, but not much, if any, out in the desert or forest. I also want to be...

Suspension problem by Mike Romain
They used to have 5 mph bumpers. That is about it though. New vehicles are the opposite of what you are looking for, they are designed to collapse so the people don't take as much of a hit. You hit a culvert or side of a driveway and all the weight of that van is compressed into one corner with...

Radiator Fan Relay on 97 Chrysler van by [email protected]
For completeness, I found it. It is one the left (driver side) fender on the inside near the horn. To get to it, the air filter and tubes must be disassembled. Its a couple of clamps and a few bolts.
