This happened to my 2001 Regal... There is a factory recall on the Catalytic Converter going bad. I had mine replaced with the recall and haven't had a problem since

SOURCE: speedometer is 5 mph off.
Most speedometers are off by a few miles per hour even when new, this is normal
but yours could be caused by putting different size tires on the car check the owners manual for correct size tires

Its a loose connection on the speedo cable. its a b*tch to get to. I had the same problem on my truck, it would fluctuate in 5th gear on the highway. i spent the money and had a professional do it.

The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

My 96 did the same thing. The speed sensor is and was fine -- the problem is an open circuit in the wires inside the gauge itself.
The Chilton's manual has pretty good instructions on how to replace the instrument cluster. You can buy just the speedometer gauge, or an entire instrument cluster for $100 or so on eBay. Just be sure you get a cluster that matches your model and trim line -- the LX and DX have different clusters, and of course the automatic and the 5-speed are different as well.
Do be sure to disconnect the battery before you begin the project, as there's a (slim) chance you can discharge the airbags if you don't
