My speedometer quit working. The day it happened it would come and go randomly. Once it really quit, it quit. Also it misfires about 65 % of the time when I start up cold. I changed the cam sensor already.

The speedometer issue is probably the speed sensor on the transmission. A new one will cure the problem. Very common problem.

How old are the plugs and wires, vacuum leak in lines attached to intake manifold, changed fuel filter recently, and pour some injector cleaner in the tank.

Hope this helps.

My speedometer only quit working when it get cold like this every year summer time it work find on my 2005 mustang ??

This is a pretty common issue with the 2005 Mustang speedometers. The reason it's acting up is because the motor that controls the gauge is going bad. There's a DIY guide on how to repair it here - 2005 Mustang Speedometer Problem

Also, you can send it in for repair to a speedometer repair specialist.

Speedometer is jumping all-over

You better check the connector to the speedo and cluster, either you bent a pin or damaged the printed circuit, or the connector is not locked properly.

I have no experience at all with Ford products, but if I had to guess, it would be the that either the connector came loose, or the sensor in the transmission that sends the speed signal to the computer/ speedometer failed. You should be able to see this sensor near the rear of the transmission. It is held in place with a single bolt, and has an electrical connector. Check that the connector is securely in place and that the wires are not frayed or broken. If you find you need a new sensor, they cost about $30.
