I am far from home and my truck is acting up. The speedometer has started flailing around wildly and every so often we'll feel the kick of the transmission (automatic) shifting or falling out of and into gear. I think the problem is electronic as every so often the speedometer starts behaving normally and the transmission settles down and behaves normally.
Bonus: The ABS light has also come on and stays on when the speedometer is behaving itself. My wife was driving when this started and she isn't sure if it came on when the other started or if it came on a bit earlier.
The truck is a '95 Ford F-250 with a 7.5 liter engine and about a zillion miles on it.
