You think if I just leave it alone it’ll “fix” the car to have a engine and transmission swap?
Did you buy it from an old guy who said it was his brothers car but his brother passed away?
Does the odometer seem to run backwards occassionally?
Is the car nicknamed "Christine"?
If the answers are "No", It won't fix itself.
Anyhow the trip odometer sometimes doesn't reset the gear correctly and it won't work. Try resetting it a few times and see if it catches. If not you can clean the gear shaft and it will work fine. The oil pressure sender has a small hole that if there is dirt in the oil, can clog causing intermittent or inaccurate readings. The flex-print that goes on the rear of the gauge panel could have some dirty connections affecting the speedo. You can buy electrical contact cleaner at an electronics store and clean the contacts (could also be related to the oil gauge if it is in the same cluster.)
