Asked by Aug 29, 2014 at 12:23 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro RS Coupe RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Camaro Speedo and Tach both are reading significantly higher than the actual speed.. (IE: at 65 mph I am actually going around 50-52mp)

I have the normal sized wheels and tires on the car - 205/65/r15

No clue why it would be doing this.. any ideas?

If you have not had car sence new do you know if rear gears have ever been changed or if the speedo send unit on side of trans has ever been changed
