    speedometer works intermittently. Just works when it wants and doesn't most of the time. Tried replacing the Variable speed sensor. Didn't work. Trying changing out the gauge cluster didn't work.

    Speedometer is inaccurate at any speed. Mechanic told me to buy newspeed sensor and install. It goes on top of the transmission, back center of engine... easy to do.
