2001 honda civic xe tachometer stopped working & no engine light came on

I was driving and i noticed my tachometer was idling pretty high one day. the next day it was reading alittle to high before it came close to shifting. the third day it started to work fine and then it decided to not work at all. most i get it to come up if going 60 mph is maybe a the 2rpm mark. i tried restarting the car and it worked for alittle bit then back to not working. what gives?

    turned out to be a loose ground wire under the driver side steering columb. I tightened the bolt to a ground wire and the tach works just fine.

I simply changed the spark plugs and made sure to look under the driver seat dash where all the electrical wires were and simply started to trace wires, jiggled to see if any were loose, checked my fuses, and on the clutch there is a plastic sensor that needed to be pushed back into its spot..reseated and whaa laa it was fixed.

so my advice, check for any loose wires under you dash board in the driver seat before you go spending money on other peoples advice on this site because it should be for free in my opinion. but thats my opinion.

Have a specialist check out the power steering pump as it sounds like the pressure relief valve in the pump is intermittent and causing the noise.

While driving my tachometer doesnt go straight to 0 when i stop. It stays around 3/4 close to 1. Is this a concern? 2001 acura cl type s


Hi Eveerei, If you're asking about the tachometer and not the speedo meter, that meter records the engine RPM speed and not the vehicle ground speed The tachometer at idle (when you stop at a traffic light, stop street or any other stop) should record an engine speed of about seven hundred to seven fifty revolutions per minute, at idle. It will increase in relationship to how hard you push your foot on the accelerator pedal. Hope this info helps you. Happy new year and regards John

Sorry for the delay,having my shoulder rebuilt. The gaskets between the upper &lower plenum are a steel/plastic assembly,known to crack and cause a vacuum leak. This will cause a hard start cold and a higher than normal idle when warm.Usually by the time you notice these things the check engine light is on, indicating the idle speed is out of range.The intake can be separated,just enough,to replace the gaskets without removing fuel lines etc.find an experienced Isuzu or Honda technician..It should be about 1.5-2 hour job

1993 Honda Civic rapid heating


Sounds like your electric cooling fan(behind the radiator) is not functioning. The thermostat might not be working,making the fan
not come on at all. I once put a toggle switch in my dash,when I had
an old CRX, just to turn on the fan, or it would overheat.

Idle revs up and down by itself ..1992 honda civic


this problem is caused by a sludged up intake idle speed control valve to clean it follow these instructions.
, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.
