First, change the fuel filter, sounds like it is fuel starved.  You're right, the fuel pump will generally wither work or not, a clogged filter will only allow a certain amount of fuel through, limiting RPMs

Nothing, you have hit the rev limiter. The up and down is the computer controlling the rpm. If you drive it, it should rev past 3,000. The computer is designed to keep free wheeling rpm to that level. It will only allow a higher rpm if vehicle is in gear and moving with a load.

3000 rpm? This is pretty high for idle. You need to have the stored code read from the ECM. Usually this is a simple O2 sensor but with it racing to 3000 rpm I would have this diagnosed by a tech at a shop.

Well all cars idle at 550 rpm to 700 rpm depends on engine but it sounds like you throttle body is not shutting down .
yes could be idle sensor or you could have a hose come off the intake manifold so bypassing the body valve, ,check throttle cable for free play when not going..check for hoses off /crackedand leaking air/or hose off the engine block either big or small ..

Low rpm on start up, check engine light came on.


If you dont have a code reader go to Autozone and have them read them for you. it sounds as if you may have a defective sensor. It may be a simple cheep solution to try to clean your mass air flow sensor. You Can do this by taking some brake parts spray cleaner to clean it up. the brake parts cleaner dosent leave any residue so it wont harm the sensor. If you dont know where the sensor is located it is usually located just after the air filter box.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
