You may have s speedo cable that connects from the back of your instrument cluster to the transmission. If that is the case, the needle where it connected to is broken. You will have to pull out the cluster to get the broken needle out and to loosen cable. Disconnect from transmission and replace.

I have a 1986 Nissan and while i was driving the speedometer just qui working but my other gauges are working just fine

Many times The crusie control won't work either. the seedometer is triggered by a senser on the output shft of the transmission. You didn't say which car or ruck you have or which engine either so I can't tell where the senser is. The wire can come off the senser can wear out and fail the senser can start leaking and the oil can foul the electrical connection. The speedometer can fail too but it's less likly. If it did it may display the chage in miles without showing the speed.

See if you have a leak in any of your coolant tubes. If no leaks, you may have a bad thermostat that is stuck closed and needs to be replaced asap.

Speedometer not working

If the speedo is the only thing that is not working then it has a defective stepper motor, that is the little motor that moves the needle, it can be repaired, most of the cost is removing the speedo and re-installing it, so if u can do that u will save allot of green, ask the dealer for the name and phone number of the company that fixes there speedo's, don't go through the dealer, they will 2X the repair bill, go directly to the repair station.
