    Afternoon chaps and chapesses,

    Driving to work this morning, my speedo seemed fine when I left the house, hit the motorway and when I first glanced at it when going past a speed camera it was jumping about all over the place, it seems to jump up and down and on the up it seems to register about the right speed.

    The car is an ESI but it has a b16a fitted, I've got no idea what dial set it's running if it's original clocks or not.

    Is there any common sensor faults I should be aware of?

    have a look at the VSS sensor mate, an see if the fuse has been dislodged, failing that test the cable in the loom an the clock itself! if you need a VSS i have one kicking about somewere
