I have done this work for 25 years and who ever he is that said the ECM may be bad is most likely incorrect, the ECM or computer is the last part that fails, the failure rate is about 2%, need to know the codes you have to give further assistance to you, thanks

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

Just curious about some more details. Will it idle at all? It's ok after 20 mph or higher rpm? Could be either a large vacuum leak or egr valve stuck open? Any more detail would be great.
