#56 of 58 1989 Escort LX - Tachometer doesn't work
Sep 08, 2003 (2:15 pm)
I just bought my 1989 Ford Escort LX with automatic transmission 140000 mi. Everything is fine, except two things. a) Air Conditioner doesn't work, and b) Tachometer is not alive.
I tried to change tachometer to a "new" one from Junk yard, I checked all wires which going to tachometer. Everything looks fine, but tachometer doesn't move. Did somebody have same problem? Can you help me?
I do not ask about A/C - it will be my next step

I had my Escort for last 10 years and now has 95,000 miles. Engine starts well but when I change gear from part to drive position car moves very slow or some times takes long time to move. Has any one experienced similar problem? Any idea how much it will cost to fix.

rinat- You may also want to post your question on our Maintenance & Repair Message board. If you can't find an appropriate discussion there, feel free to start up a new one.
ghates - In addition to posting on our M & R board, you should plug your vehicle (model/year) into Edmunds' Maintenance Guide to see if there any technical service bulletins (TSBs) that might be related to your vehicle problem. Good luck.
