    I think he is talking about the speedo drive grear gear in the transmision. It a quick and easy fix. I'm guessisng that this is an older car as I think that they went to speed sensors fully in the early 90's late 80s. If you are refering to your handle than it will be a sensor and not a gear. It its not that than chances are your speedo servo has lost power or is totaly dead.

    I would assume he is referring to the speedometer drive gear usually located in the tail shaft* of the transmission. There are usually two, a drive gear attached to the output shaft and a driven gear that connects to the speedo cable housing. Of course it all depends on what vehicle you were talking about as to where the drive gear is or if it even has one.

    *Rear wheel drive

    Front Wheel drive have a different configuration. Usually on one of the output shaft housings of the trans-axle. Almost all Modern (Last Few Years) vehicles now use electronic Speed Sensors or transducers of some sort to drive the Speedo.

    This Thread would be best in the Drivetrain Forum
