typically the cause is a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) on the transmission. The VSS is a pulse generating sensor that uses a magnet to 'read' the speed of the output shaft on the transmission and send that information to the speedometer. Chances are that the sensor or the connection on the sensor is bad.

the sensor is relatively easy to replace. it is mounted on top of the transmission housing and is only held in by two cap bolts. just undo the connector and take the old sensor off then put in the new sensor.

you should be able to find a replacement in a scrapyard if you don't want to pay the price of a new one. they are pretty much all the same.

hope that helps
