1998 Acura Legend mileage: 155,000. My car's speedometer has been acting strangely lately. The needle vibrates as I get moving. The faster I go the faster the needle vibrates. Around 60 miles per hour it bounces back and forth around one dash. The funny thing is that it only happens sometimes. This is driving me crazy. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

The speedometer is driven by a cable that connects to the transmission. The cable should be replaced. You can try cleaning and re-lubing the cable, that sometimes works.
