my speedometer kinda like dances until about 40mph, then it steadys out to a normal reading. under that you can hear it ticking as it bounces around in the general vicinity of the MPH im going. is my gage bad? or is it a speedo cable or the speedo gear in the tranny?

TIA

If you find out let me know. The last two cars I owned did the same thing. Both had repo speedo cables. makes me think that may be the problem. I even changed the driven gear and the gear inside the tail shaft with no success.
Good Luck!!

This is caused by a lack of lubrication problem...If you grease the cable or use Magic Mystery oil this should go away.
