My 97 5-door AWD (185k) sat in the garage for several months during some body work, and now after getting it back on the road, the speedometer reads a lot higher than it should, for awhile anyway. At first it was reading about 90mph when I was going 55, but sometimes it reads even higher, even off the scale. As I'm driving, the needle gradually drops back closer to where it should be, and after about 45 minutes to an hour of driving it's reading correctly. Any ideas?

I had the opposite problem, speedometer read about 13% LOWER than actual speed (while odometer still worked fine). I ended up swapping in another cluster and this problem was solved. Now... my miles indicated 60k more than actual :(. I might have to learn how to turn back the miles but for a legitimate reason :).
