My mate is having a problem in that if she is driving along the road at any speed in any gear the speedo gauge will suddenly drop for no reason. sometimes the car even judders or sometimes stalls it dosnt happen all the time just is annoying when it does after a couple of minutes it gos back up to whatever speed the car is going at and it runs fine
any ideas ? :unsure:

Just had this on mine its the speed sensor
starting to fail' you need to get it sorted becasuse it can just pack up anytime
and at any speed. WITHOUT warning
tells you how to do it in haynes manual

see this linkspeed sensor
