Hi all,

I recently put a new dash into my EL falcon GLI (replaced it with an EF one with Oil pressure sender and Voltmeter). It all worked out for a while till the speedo needle started to get wobbly. Took it to a few places and they told me its most probably the sensor in the gearbox. I took it to 1 more mechanic and he checked the teeth and said they were fine.

If anyone else has had a problem like this could they tell me what it was, don't want to go wasting money with something that could be a simple fix.

Thanks fellas,
Jas.

if im acceleratiing up to 80 then its ok but when its just minor movments then it would flicker

a constant deceleration or acceleration would genraly be a smoth one apart from once or twice it got stuck
