The 2 gears inside the speedo are most likely broke. Pretty common problem

I believe the odometer is read off the speedo sensor as well.

You can check it by jacking up your car. Go the the rear of the transmission. On the drivers side there is in the 98s an electrical connection plugged into a sensor. Undo the plug, unscrew the one bolt holding the sensor in, pull out the sensor. On the end of the sensor should be a gear. Inspect that for damage.

my speedometer works fine, but my odometer and trip dont work. the 2 gears need to be replaced, but it seems to be a pita to do. maybe one day i will do it.

If the speedometer AND tyhe odometer aren't working it is most likely the vehicle speed sensor located on the transmission. It will take you longer to jack the car up enough to reach it than it will take to change it.
