Have a professional technician diagnose this one.. too many 'possible' causes here.... like the vehicle speed sensor/wiring or the cluster itself

Tachomiter speedomiter dont work wont shift

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Need to get dash off to get to speedomiter how do i do it

I actually just did this, All you do is lift the top part of the dash straight up. You can just hold it up and there are 4 screws that hold the gauge cluster together. Then the cluster just slides right out, no wires to worry about.

Transmition downshifts hard or will not shift at all for a period of time and the speedomiter will not work all of the time and cruse will not work. when speedomiter does work everything else works...

VSS --vehicle speed sensor

on the outside of the transaxle case
on top i believe

It may be corroded in there &
hard to get out

May be the only sensor with a wire connector

Any other wire harness goes inside to valve body

Now speedomiter in my truck.

in a 1998 it should be electronic. if it's a fuse. it is either in the power distribution center in front of the brake master cylinder or in the driver side of the dashboard at the drivers door opening. but my honest guess is the electronic speed sensor on the transmission. go to a auto parts store and they can tell you exactly where it's located.
