chevy
c1500

200,897

driving on the exp.way when i heard the drive shaft making a noise.
so the u joint broke,driveshaft fell and slip yoke broke.
the mech. replaced ujoints and slip yoke but now my truck's speedometer doesnt go beyond zero 0. and the mech. said he fixed it and that had noclue any advice or clues before i throw money at it snd take it to a real shop......

Also you are going to think im crazy but when o give it gas it feels like its heavy or its i dont know i mean i driven her for 4yrs and she feals different like it takes its time to speed up not like before

The driveshaft may have damaged the Vehicle Speed sensor which is mounted in the tailshaft of the transmission.

Computer probably doesn't know how to shift the transmission because the VSS signal is missing.

1998 speedo issue.... HELLO did you SCAN for codes?

STEP 1 scan -
STEP 2 post results

I would be concerned " throw money - real shop " comment.... a professional technician would not be at a loss for next step... NEVER would have returned without at least the details of the scan being discussed...
