For some reason it seems i can here something turning really fast in my dash....i think its the guages but the faster i go the faster the little whine goes. It's so weird. I had that in my 89' 5.0 Stang too. maybe it's me just being anal but i can't hear it any of my buddy's cars. Have any ideas? :eek2:

Don't complain after less than an hour, geez! :jest:
(Q) My speedometer makes a whirring noise, is it ready to wear out?
(A) Maybe yes, maybe no. That "whirring" sound is usually caused by a dry cable. You can detach the cable casing at the transmission end and carefully pull the cable through. Clean it with solvent and let it thoroughly dry then grease the length of the cable with a non-migrating grease, preferrably lithium-based. Then feed the cable back through. DON'T FORCE IT! The last inch or so you will have to turn the cable a little so that it will line up with the speedometer. Reconnect everything and test drive it. If that didn't cure your problem then the speedometer head likely needs service.
