Sounds like the tach is shot ,,,, bad connections can sometimes cause this as can a faulty crank sensor but this would usually cause the car to run badly

You need to have the tach replaced or take it out and have an auto repair shop or the dealer send it out for repairs, that is if it's repairable.

2002 dodge stratus temperature gauge is fluctuating


its possible that you have a head gasket starting to go bad and driving it at a higher speed the engine gets hotter and can force combustion chamber gasses into the cooling system causing a higher temp showing up on the gauge.you can get a block test down that hopefully show it up depending how early in the stage the gasket has deteriated.sound this as a diagnostic sign back in the early 80`s.

RPM is over 400 rpm higher than it should be with no gas pedal.


Could be several things.. I would suggest replace the neutral safety switch, all O2 sensors and fuel and air filters, PVC valve and if needed plugs n wires..
The issue could also be a bad throttle body.. Should be a good idea to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine - get the codes and then you will know more of what you are dealing with..

Have a great day !!

2000 Dodge Cummins is blowing fuse on the starter solenoid. Also, tach goes to zero and back up to normal until truck warms up. Noticed a momentary hesitation at highway speed once or twice while driving...


wire that goes to the starter not the main wire there is a smaller wire that sends electric from the switch to the starter solinoid might be shorting out (skinned wire between the starter and the ignition switch/fusebox

My 2000 dodge stratus will go up almost to hot when acr is warming up. then it will go down to the halfway point.


Your Thermostat is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. It is sticking (closed) causing the elevated temperature. When it reaches that higher than normal temperature, is when it opens up. It should opening up between 180 and 195 degrees Farenheit. Yours is obviously way beyond that.
Replace it and recheck operation.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Tach acts more like a volt or temp meter


check the speedometer cable to see if the cable wires have come apart ?
