    I have a 91' Chrysler Dynasty, 3.3 Litre automatic. The speedometer has
    been working intermittently. Occasionally it will work when I flash to
    pass, or turn on the high beams. Have even seen it bounce a couple times
    when the signal light is turned on. On most days, it seems to be tied to
    voltage fluctuations. Other days it seems to be tied to be related to
    temperature when it works.

    Have read quite a bit on the internet. I haven't seen the solution to this
    particular problem, but seems like most problems are tied to the sensor on
    the transaxle. If I remove the sensor, is there any way to diagnose if the
    sensor is any good before replacing it? The sensor appears to be on the top
    of the transaxle - I'm assuming I can remove it without loosing any
    transmission fluid - am I correct?

    9 out of 10 times the prob. is the sensor, and you may loose a very small
    amount of ATF when you remove the sensor.

    Had exactly the same problem you describe. Replaced the sensor.
    Lost a few drops of fluid. All works wonderfully now.
