SOURCE: SPEEDOMETER CABLE
It's a common fault with the cables.
If you can take it apart when you remove it, Then use petrol to clean it, let it dry, then use a thin oil like 3 in 1 and re-assemble.
If this still produces the same effect - Replace the whole thing - it won't get better.
(I restore Land Rovers - this is a common fault)

The most likely problem is the speedometer cable is broken, probably near the transmission. if it's the cable, probably under $10. Disconnect the housing at the transmission, and the cable is inside. Pull the cable out, it should be square at both ends. a broken cable is obvious. insert a good cable (with some appropriate cable lube) into the flexable cable housing, you might have to turn the cable a bit to get the end back in the speedometer. If it is broke , you will also have to disconnect the housing at the speedometer to get the other end out. You might be able to reach it from under the dash, but you might have to loosen the instrument cluster to reach it.

that would be the first plavce i checked and the cable runs from the transmission to the dash and its a real hassle to get to and install I would get a chilton manual to show you how to get to the connections the easiest way, you can also get a repair manual at your local library
