The quick and dirty method to make an odometer accurate again that I remember cranny saying was to take off the glass cover, remove the needle, drive next to someone you know is going a particular speed, and put your needle down exactly on that speed.

That would make the speedometer accurate,not the odometer. The odometer is what tracks the mileage and wouldn't be affected by the needle's location. If you are trying to set back the odometer, that's hugely illegal, and while I know how to do it, I'm not telling anybody directions on illegal stuff.

If the trany was just replaced or rebuilt, make sure the wire connect to the VSS unit is properly connected (it is located in/on the transmission). If not try that first. You can also test the VSS to see if it is working properly. The other somewhat common problem with that generation car is that the spedo head fails. The only fix for that is a new one or a used one of similar mileage.
