Question Answered: 

Your vehicle has a speed sensor mounted on the transmission and sends a signal to the computer, which drives the speedometer in the dash. The speed sensor could cause a transmission issue, as well as ABS light to come on. I wouldn't think that replacing the speedometer could cause your current issues.

Question Answered: 

Not sure if you've already serviced your truck, but just wanted to share a few things. It's important to note that valve cover gaskets shrink with age and this could be a possible cause of the leak. Simply tightening the valve cover doesn't solve the shrinking problem. (As with all repairs, unless it's looked at, it's difficult to quickly 'diagnose'.) If your gasket hasn't shrank, tightening the bolts *may* help. Generally, the gasket is a very inexpensive part and the labor to replace can be minimal. You're better-off simply replacing it to avoid any future leaking.

Question Answered: 

Check the brake light switch. It may just be a coincidence but if it isn't adjusted properly the brake lights could stay on. There is a rubber bumper on the brake pedal arm that the switch contacts and it will wear out over time, throwing the switch adjustment out of wack.
