    OK hear it is

    Last night i was driving up my street when my sport botton light started flashing, and i looked in my manual and it says, i possibly have a tranny malfunction, but I just had the tranny rebuilt, so that is under a warranty.

    Hear is the real problem

    This morning i am driving tomy friends and my odometer and trip odometer aren't working along with my speedometer, but the tach, fuel, and engine temp were working. Then I throw a check engine light, then all of the guages start working. Then the odometer and speedometer stop working. When I get to his house i backupin my parking spot, and the engine started idiling low, and started to bog out, i gave it some gas and it was ok, then i let it off and it almost died again.

    What do you guys think, I have a 91 accord with 190,000 mile on her?

    I was think new timing belt and regular tune up, but so much shit was wrong with the instrumentpanel.

    Thanksin advance for all the posts!!

    peace
    jeff

    sounds like a problem with your tranny VSS maybe?(the speedo and od. issue) is it automatic? i guess it could cause the motor to bog..

    Check your codes. In your passenger side panel behind your glovebox. VSS is the Vehicle Speed Sensor. Your tranny may not always trip the check engine light, but if you jump the service connector you will still get the appropriate code. Post that code here or look it up. BTW, VSS is code 17.

    call the "stealership"... if its stil underwarranty, the place that did your trans should cover it. Just blame the prob on them :p
