i thought the problem was just my clutch cable needing replaced but it turned out to be the pedals weld point. the odometer has never worked since i've owned the car but no one can tell why it doesn't work. no gears are sticking and the speedometer works fine. question, i replaced the heater core and had the fuel pump problem also; how can i get reimbersed for these recalls ?
