Does anyone know why the speedometer bounces from 0-30 mph when accelerating?

thanks

The speedo is cable driven and the cable is faulty. We sell them in the partsshop if needed.

The cable is bolted to Trans, goes thru floor under the carpet, cliped to underdash panel & is screwed to instrument cluster. If you have confidence in removing inst cluster then other tasks are simple.

Before replacing the cable try some cable lubricant such as Kable-Ease. A good percentage of the time this will solve the bouncy needle problem. If that doesn't work you'll then have to replace the cable.
