SPEEDOMETER

1998 Nissan Frontier

Interior problem
1998 Nissan Frontier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 97000 miles

I have noticed that the speedometer occasionally does not work. 3 days ago it would read 40mph and stay stuck there regardless if I were driving faster, but it would drop to zero after coming to a stop. No engine light comes on the dashboard. Today it is working fine. Is the problem with the speedometer sensor or speedometer head? No other instruments/gauges are affected. Is there a way to test if the sensor is good or bad without buying a new one and replacing it?
