Sounds like a vehicle speed sensor issue? It is either a loose or bad connection with the plug going to the vehicle speed sensor on the rear differential cover......I would check that first.... #9 in pic below: try cleaning it up first..... If not, could be a faulty sensor.

I would say,

a) fuel pump playing up

b) fuel non return valve playing up

Yes, I figured it would be easier to check outside @ the sensor 1st....hope everything works out. Also, I am pretty sure you have to remove the steering wheel to get the cluster out, unless maybe you can get it from behind....
note: make sure you disconnect your battery first....before removing the steering wheel....& any SRS plugs from the steering wheel....you don't want to set an airbag code off....

johnny,
