Is it normal for the speedometer needle in a 1990 Ford Escort to wiggle before it hits 28-30 MPH as opposed to moving smoothly?

It is not normal and if it is a manual speedo the cable needs lubing and if it is electric, there is a problem that needs to be checked out. GoodluckJoe

What would be the underlying cause of the speedometer and odometer not working in an 1992 Ford Escort?

I'm pretty sure they are cable driven. Often the plastic gear that the speedo cable plugs into in the gauge will wear out and fail. But before assuming that, check the cable itself. If isn't broken than it's probably the gauge in the cluster.


When the speedometer for a 86 Tempo fails is it a fuse or part?

definitly a part...either the odometer unit itself, a speedometer cable or just the gear that's in the transmission under the cable...I say this as I've never seen a digital speedometer on any topaz or tempo from 1990 a before
