02blacksvt Well I have now noticed when I have the issue that I can hear like rattling it sounds like a glass jar of change being shook up. That's the best way to describe it.

02blacksvt Okay so my fear of it being a clutch or throw out bearing or any of that is not possible? It's probably just a sensor like that VSS or TPS? Sound more likely?

Oh and ps, I discovered at work that my CEL bulb is blown!!! ): I put a obd11 reader on it and I have a few codes. Cylinder one misfire , evap leak , bank 1 o2 sensor and this is an odd one, advanced variable camshaft timing??
It sounds like you have several problems you need to address.
Yes, they probably are related to your other "engine don't run right" problems.

Slipping clutch will not fool the speedo.

The speed sensor is in the transmission, the clutch is before the transmission, if the clutch is slipping than the transmission will not "speed up" with the motor RPMS, because it is no longer coupled tightly to the motor.

Slipping clutch is the same as pushing the clutch pedal down.

No, it would not.
I missed that very important detail about the speedo.
(why it is important to clearly describe the problem)

I would lean towards in intermittent open circuit, loose wire, bad ground, loose relay, that kind of thing.

CaptainRyan Just for clarrification the tach and spedo jumped - Did the car accelerate when this occurred? or did it just begin to run like crap? I have seen this in a 1998 honda where the main relay was going bad and intermitantly killing power to the PCM. I'd check for a loose connector at the PCM and then start checking grounds
