The speedo gauge is hyperactive, as i accelerate it quickly dials up and by 15mph or so is pegged at 85+ and stays there until I drop below 15mph(I guess). Thankfully I've only gotten one speeding ticket. I generally just follow the flow of traffic, however there is not always some one to follow. Lol
My Tacho seems to work fine until it reaches 3500+ then it starts jumping all around. Not sure what the issue is here either.
My Temperature gauge has only registered a temp a few times. Otherwise it never reads any temp at all. This is the one that worries me the most. I have replaced the thermostat but it did not fix it. I priced out a thermostat sending unit. But it seems cheaper just to but a new aftermarket gauge in and bypass the old.
I was told when I bought the car that the ECM did not work properly. (this was the reason given for why the speedo did not work) The story was that somehow oil had gotten on it and disrupted its normal function. A new one was installed but did not help.
So at this point the as when I bought it ECS indicator light in the dash is generally on, and sometimes the EGR light.
The engine seems runs rich, and I get 23mpg regardless of what how or where I am driving.
So in brief, i'm not sure where to start or how these issues relate to eachother. Please Help.

I miss labeled the ECM and the ECS light as ECU
