Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Based on your explanation of the problem, this sounds to me like you have an electronic vehicle speed sensor that is failing. The speed sensor is located on the transaxle. If you have the vehicle scanned, and the tech finds a P0500 diagnostic trouble code, the speed sensor is indeed the problem. A failing speed sensor will cause the speedometer to fluctuate, cause hesitation, and set the check engine light to be illuminated.
