    I've already ordered one. I hope it works. I took a 4.3 sensor and changed the gear and it didn't work. I took it apart and made sure the wires were soldered and it still didn't work. Thanks for the offer. I thought all your Miata stuff was gone.

    I put the new speed sensor in and, voila! My speedometer and cruise control are back to working.

    My speedometer has always been off. I checked it a little bit today. It's like it was before. 40 mph is 35, 45 mph is 50, 50 mph is just under 60and 60mph is 62 and about a half. I'm going to guess that although the tires I have been using are the same size as original, 205/45/16, I think the overall diameter is actually less than the all seasons that the car was built with.

    My speedo reads faster than I am actually going. Keeps me out of trouble.

    Just for conversation. When I drained my trans, it was filled with amsoil gl-4 synthetic. I had 25-30k on it. Almost no shavings on the magnetic drain plug. The oil looked milky though.

    I can't open the upper "fill" bolt. I can add fluid through the turret thought. I have found, in the past, that adding two quarts, which is the transmission's capacity, would overfill it. Fluid would blow out of the vent. I guessed that a pint stays in and only put 1.75 quarts in. When I can get on a lift I'll be able to get the leverage to open that damn bolt. I remember that it never had a crush washer on it and I tightened it way too tight.

    Shifts good the way it is. Wasn't sticky or notchy after 125 mile drive. Hated spending $50 but I should be good to go for the next few years.

    Joe, I thought you have the 5-speed tranny which can’t be filled through the turret.

    No, I have a six speed. Got to get it up on a lift so I can get some leverage to crack that damn bolt loose. This time it will go on with a crush washer and less than 300 lbs of torque!

    I know what you mean. One of my biggest peeves is oil filters torqued to 150lbs.

    Put the car on a lift yesterday to break the fill bolt loose. One good crack at it with a 30'' breaker bar is all it took. I just tightened the hell out of it. Interesting note. Spec says fill from empty is 2 quarts. When I've done that, after draining, I was getting oil out of the breather, telling me that it's overfilled. I put exactly 1.75 quarts of Ford unicorn tears this time. When I got the fill bolt out and stuck my finger in, it was totally full. So when you use the drain bolt, even on level ground, 8 oz. of fluid remains in the trans.

    It did have a washer on it. If anybody needs to know, it takes a 18mm id by 25mm od crush washer. I bought one at a dealership, to make sure. It was $7.00. O'reillys had them $5.00 for two. I wasn't sure of the size , so I bought the dealership one to make sure. Pretty sure differential washers are the same size.
