Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
I'm assuming this is an automatic transmission.
It sounds as though your drive gear in the transmission or on the governor has worn out and is not longer being driven when the vehicle moves. Without the governor, the transmission will not shift and the speedometer will not work as they are both driven from the same area.
You will have to remove the governor cover ( it is the cover the VSS or PM generator mounts) and remove the governor to see if the drive gear is damaged.
Let me know what you find.
