I would check/fix the speed sensor plug first. Pins on the inside spread apart and will loose contact when the get hotter. Next would be replace the speed sensor. They are coils and act the same way. When hot they die, but cold they work fine. You can check the speed sensor with an ohm or hertz meter. But you have to check it when the sensor is hot.

Speedometer quit working after transmission work and trans won't **** on 1999 Chevy silverado 4x4 5.3l


Most transmissions have a plastic gear mounted on the uotput shaft that connects to a gear on the end of the speedo cable or electronic sender unit for the speedo. This gear is normally driven by a steel ball embedded in the shaft and the gear has a slot that makes the ball act as a drive key. I would check by removing the sender unit/cable and seing if the gear can be rotated around the shaft. If it can be moved take the unit back to the reconditioners and ask for a warranty repair as the ball/ key has probably fallen out during assembly

1997 Chevy Lumina the speedometer quit working and now it will not shift over while driving what could the problem be? It started yesterday...When the speedometer works the car drives fine bt then wi


could be the VSS - vehicle speed sensor .
Speedometer and Odometer
The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a gear driven permanent magnet generator. The vehicle transaxle houses the VSS. The VSS generates a sine wave output with a frequency proportional to the vehicle speed.
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) converts the CKT 389 signal to an output that switches to ground at a frequency of 4000 pulses per mile. The CKT 389 signal drives the speedometer and the odometer. Various other vehicle components use the CKT 389 signal. Refer to Engine Controls.

Speedometer


You need to find out if your speedometer is cable driven or electronic. If it is cable driven there will be a cable running from your transmission to the back of the speedometer. Sometimes the cables lose their lubrication and break. Usually pretty cheap to replace.

If your speedometer is electronic there is a sensor on your transmission that sends a signal to your speedometer. Either your sensor (called a Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS) went bad or your speedometer quit working. The sensors are usually inexpensive....the speedometers are NOT! Last one I needed I bought off eBay and purchased one with the lowest miles I could find. If you ever sell the car you have to mark the title that the speedometer is not correct. I usually keep the old speedometer around along with a record of the mileage of the replacement so I can always figure out the cars true mileage if I need to.
