View Full Version : odometer rolling?

04-23-2009, 07:03 AM
k i know its highly illeagle to alter the odometer so its false but im going to get my truck registered and the title has 189,000 miles written on it and the old gauge cluster was bad so i got another one but the mileage is 22x,xxx .

i would just swap the odometer numbers but i think i threw the old one out

any help would be welcomed

You sure they're gonna ask you?
do you have to do a physical inspection?

I'm just curious because most states only require the Odometer reading for the first 10 years... (most of my titles say N/A)

If you take apart the speedo, you should be able to either disassemble the odometer, or press/release the tabs in order to rearrange the numbers. I've done this on old chevy's, but i'm not familiar with the celica...

I did a write up on this... can't be much different... however, if the speedo still works, just swap it into the new cluster.

well i cant locate the old cluster, and speedo didnt really work, if you moved it read 40 or 90 mph, and would just bounce

Oh... well, then read my write up on how to roll back odometers for the purpose of matching lower mileage cars.

roll em back dood, nobody will know, your odo is exempt from inspection

I did it on my fifth gen when I got a different cluster.

Then I realized the car had over 200k anyway and wasn't worth it.

Most states are exempt.

My current cars read actual mileage on the title. The Volvo actually shows 012843 when it should have been 127,xxx. I keep needing to call them to change that. But, since my cars both came from Illinois, they still have actual mileage.

If I sell them in-state to someone else, they'll be exempt as an option.

I pulled a GT-S cluster so I could have the voltmeter, and when I got it home, I saw it read almost 250k. I was like nuh-uh and swapped them. 150k is already high enough mileage for me, especially when 50k of it is from May '07 to Oct '08.
