As Bob Myers pointed out, the most likely place is cold
solder joints where the four prongs on the speedo unit
meet the main circuit board ( the green flex thing...)

If your speedo can be made to temporarily fix itself
with a (well practiced) whack on the side of the 
gauge cluster, its probably a bad connection.

I disagree with Bob about replacing the connector though.
Just resolder, it will probably be good for another 100k miles.
