Speedo dip/ Power loss
#1
Just had something weird happen. Driving at a steady 40 and there felt like there was a very slight loss of power, I glanced down and just caught the speedo needle dipping to zero and back again.

Looming crank sensor issue? I have no manual to see where the speedo gets it's signal from.

Earth connections to chassis from the engine at a guess, that's a classic for making the speedo go funny - the speedo is driven off the diff, rather than anything to do with the crank sensor.

Just to echo the above, its your VSS. Quite a common fault and not that expensive to sort Smile
