Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup
Replace instrument cluster.
Posted on Jul 11, 2010
The speedo cable could be lose at the transmission or the lips to hold it in place along it's run are lose so the cable moves about causing the inner cable to bind.
Most likely it is dirty on the inside so the able is sticking. It can be removed easily by unscrewing it from the transmission on one end and unhooking it form the back of the instrument cluster on the other.
Once removed, use carb cleaner or brake cleaner to spray down the speedo cable to clean it out. The inner cable will not come out as it has press on fittings on both ends. Rotate the inner cable with your fingers as you spray. Hold the cable up so the cleaner drains down the inside and out the bottom. Do this for the whole can.
Let sit for about 15 to 30 minutes so all the cleaner evaporates. It will not leave behinds any residue.
Using the same technique, spray silicon lubricant down inside the inner tube. You can't use graphite powder or lithium as it wont work it's way down the whole length.
Reinstall and that should fix the speedo needle from jumping. Also
