Re: sticky EA speedo needle.

Check the speedo plug under the car, could be loose/dirty.
Other than that, the gears inside the speedo unit itself may be wearing out.

Re: sticky EA speedo needle.

In the side of the transmission, i cant remember whether its on the Left or Right, it depends on what kind of transmission it is.

Enjoy,

Re: sticky EA speedo needle.

Under the car, you will see a red tube with three wires in it. There will be a plug about halfway down the box joining one half (from the speedo sender) to the other half (to the body loom). This can get wet, dirty, or just plain loose and cause symptoms like what you describe.
