The cable may need a lubing with graphite or something, if it seizes and snaps you might get this. Should be a quick fix.

Your speed sensor may be going out or the cable may not be firmly attached.

I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.
