Started my car and drove perfectly, as soon as I got on the freeway the car started shifting gears erratically and the speedometer also began jumping up and down. After about 10 seconds the speedometer was stuck at zero and when I stopped the car on the side of the road the car wouldn't go past 1st gear when I tried moving it. 2nd time this happens, the first time I randomly checked cables to see if they were loose, and after about a minute of driving everything started working. Tried it this time and it didn't work, could the problem be with the transmission(just had old one replaced with one from the junk yard), the vehicle speed sensor or a cable that isn't plugged in right?
