Problems, Parts and Diagnosis. / Speedo issue
« on: April 15, 2012, 09:31:16 PM »
Hey guys. Haven't been here in a while, sorry for the lack of attendance. Lately my speedo has developed a strange problem. After driving for a bit the speedo will jump up or down, depending on my speed, to 45mph and stay there. The odometer appears to be ticking off miles at the correct rate and no other instruments are affected. It is the sport cluster, 120 speedo with tach. I've seen plenty of inop speedos and other instrument failures on Escorts but never this particular problem. Any ideas? Also, did a data log with my buddy's CRecorder and the VSS trace was on the money and no trouble codes or pending codes. Any ideas? Has anybody been inside the speedo/instrument cluster and noted any problems such as solder joint fractures, etc.?

update 4\21- Noted that the problem appears to be happening only above a certain temperature because as long as it is fairly cool the problem is not there.

Detailing / Humor me

Okay, I've heard it mentioned many times. I have actually seen the package. However, I haven't the faintest idea about the proper or best technique for it's use. I am talking about the Clay Bar. No, not the beer joint down the street that your buddy Clay owns, I mean as it applies to finish restoration. Basically, what should I avoid doing with it so I don't screw up mama's truck  ;) . It is a '94 Blazer Tahoe LT, red all over . . . . an icky hazy faded dull red all over. Or, should I even be thinking Clay Bar to begin with? A little help for the old wrench here from a detail guy would be appreciated.

Here are a couple of shots of my "hack job". These, of course, are a couple of the famous "free mods" for ZX2's that regularly get mentioned.

Buried in the fender where the air cleaner surge tank used to be, is my famous triple note air horn set (O'Reilly Auto Parts-28 bucks, ha). Low and out of sight on the front of the motor is pretty blue Esslinger UDP.

Here are a few pics of the Fiero I mentioned in the forums.

Note: paw prints on nose means the cat approves as well.
