Icon5 Speedometer stopped working

I have a 92 F22A1 stick. A few days ago my speedometer stopped working. It was the same day my front and rear motor mounts gave out. (I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the speedometer going out) I took my my car to the mechanic the next day and had the motor mounts replaced and my speedometer is still not working. My RPM gauge still works but not the speedometer, odometer or trip meter.

Did your RPM gauge go out too or just the speedometer?

mine would work while the engine was still cool then would quit workin after a minute and a half after the car was runnin. recently it has completely quit workin until when i replaced my plugs and wires it worked again for a half a mile down the road then it died, again.
im guessin the vss sensor, but would it keep turnin on at random times if the vss sensor is shot?

You were right, it was the VSS. I paid a friend to replace mine and the speedometer works again.
