Broken Speedometer

Suddenly, while driving the other day, my speedometer started going haywire! Now it just randomly shoots back and forth, from zero, to 100, to 140, back to zero.

Make: Toyota
Model: Camry
Year: 1995

Q: is this something I can fix myself or do I need to bring it to the shop? Just got it back a week ago from getting an oil change.

If it's cable driven, it sounds like the cable is frayed and needs replacing. There is/was a speedometer lube which would sometimes help, but getting to the cable under the dash can be a chore.

thanks. thats what I was afraid of - too much of a hassle to try to get back there myself. I wouldnt even know WHERE to begin to access that part of the car.

Oh well, thanks for the feedback!
