do you have any other symptoms or warning lights getting on...etc...?

JACUSTOMER-u27ibncu- : Sorry 1998 model. No speedo just stops then starts again Somtimes needle goes up and down
Billy :

needle goes up and down, meaning it fluctuates?

Billy :

and do you have any warning lights on, or flashing?

Billy :

Are you still there?

There are two very common issues, causing this problem. So common that Ford issued a bulletin. The engine wires and ground points in engine bay need cleaning and tightening. I will include the bulletins so you check the details and proceed accordingly to get your fix:
