    The speedometer, gas gauge, and temp gage quit working on occasion, and will start working again with no regularity. Orriginally I thought it was when cold or damp outside, but not so sure of that.

    I have the same problem. Gages and speedometer does not work.
    I have replaced speed sensor and gage pod from a working car. Still does not work. What can I try next?

This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
