Speedo doesnt work but replaced everything.
 
Ok, i figured out how to post finally. i have an 01 focus zx3 mtx-75. the car has minor mods. have been driving it for about 3 years and lately have been having alot of problems, my biggest being that the speedometer keeps jumping and then going to zero. odometer also blanks out occasionally. so i have replaces the vehicle speed sensor and the coil pack along with wires and plugs. checked the alternator and it is fine. battery is also fine and terminals are good. any help would be much appreciated.
I also have oil coming out of my oil filter which has been going on for a while. its ruined about 3 driver side motor mounts since i began driving the car. does anyone have an answer to this problem?

Most times replacing those parts should fix this problem. The fact it didn't means it's probably in the wiring. Unfortunately there's no easy way to test it. What you'll probably end up having to do is replace the wiring from the VSS to the ECU.

Umm.
What?
I surely hope you misspoke there and meant Valve Cover Gasket.
Any oil leaking from the oil filter is very bad and should be fixed immediately. Do not drive the car until it is fixed.

Many have had back luck with parts store brand motor mounts. But many have had good luck with Motorcraft mounts.
Solution, replace with factory mounts.

Thanks for the reply. ill try the wiring next. and i did say the wrong thing. instead of oil filter i meant air filter.. its spitting up little amounts out of the air filter which is putting oil on top of the drivers side mount. i have an aem cold air intake. could this be the problem. ive heard it could be blow by but the car runs really good for it to be blow by. could anything else cause small amounts of oil to come out of the air filter. the amount must be small because im never low on oil when i check it
