:lol: Are you sure your Yota Isn't a Delorean?
He sees flashes of light at 85!

Lube your speedo cable.
How do i lube it? and please no smart ass jokes
If it uses a cable, might just replace it. The internal rotating shaft should pull out of the sleeve from one direction or the other. You might read up (Google search) on what lube to use, grease or a dry lube. Make sure you reinstall the shaft in the same direction it came out.
