speedometer freaking out

It seems to me that whenever i shift into 5th gear my speedometer starts going back and forth... And also whenever i turn on the heat it also freaks out, but when i turn the heat off its normal. I recently pressure washed the engine and i don't know if that knocked something loose or what. Anyhelp??

the speedo gear is located on the tail end of the transfercase. Check around down there to see if its loose.
