Hi, i have recently bought a Ford Escort 1.8 SI [98], it's in pretty good condition considering its age, there's only a few annoyances i need to take care of, but the most immediate thing i need to sort are my dials,my oil gauge isn't working,and when driving at [x]mph, the speed dial needle hovers and wobbles quite a lot around the actual speed im doing,surly this should be steady?,everything else works fine though!

Does anyone know how to fix this annoyance please?

Thanks for any help in advance!

Spedo bounce is a common fault on fords, if you`re lucky then its a loose cable but it normaly turns out to be the drive wheel in the g/box, not too big a job to sort just a pain in the !Removed!!!
Check all the plugs on the dials as its probably loose conections
