Question about 1995 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Tach on my 1995 eldorado is not correct

The tach on my 1995 eldorado does not read properly. Usually it reads zero but when I got to high rpms the tach needle will move up to about 1000 to 2000 rpm. It seems like it works but the calibration is off.

I have a complete dash for a 95 which should fix it. They are kind of a pain to replace, and the one I have has 91,000 on the odometer.

My 1995 Subaru Legacy (high miles, over 200,000) lurches forward and back when I try to accelerate from ~65 mph to a higher speed. This appears to coincide with going above 3,000 rpm. The tach also goes up...

You will need a computer to accurately read the signals you are getting from the sensors in the engine bay, but my guess is that the MAF sensor may be acting up.

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle

The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

Tach jumps all over the place driving and idle. works correct sometimes. how to repair?

crank sensor is tied in with the tach. you have problem with crank sensor or electrical problem. the tach reads rpms, if the sensor is bad it throws the rpms way off. this is why you get the jumping in gauge.

My 1995 Jetta GL 2.0L has Intermittent tach problems. Sometimes tach will work normally and then it falls to zero and stays there.Then it might bounce back and forth. Also, how is the tach hooked up?

The most likely problem is that you need a new voltage regulator put in the alternator,the tach runs off of it and when the tach quits i think you will find that the car also stops charging,the brushes for the alternator are in the regulator and a new one usually fixes the problem.

Tach jumps around when stepping on gas with little exceleration

can be the cluster unit or ignition module that is at fault. clusters are exchanged units at any cadillac dealer. the ignition module sends the signal for the reading on the tach gauge

I've had new plugs and wires installed but my car is still idling high. The RPM is at 10 instead of zero when sitting at a light. Midas says my serpentine belt is cracked. Is the serpentine belt the same...

The serpentine belt is not the same as the timing belt! Not sure how your tach reads but at idle it will never be zero unless the car is not running. The tach tells the engine speed and if it is running you have to get some kind of reading. The idle may need adjusted or a vacuum line could be off but a zero reading at idle at a light is not correct.

1995 Grand Prix idling high

A verry large Vacumn leak .. check for a hose off somewhere..particularily the PCV hose..also were the O rings present or missaligned on the Injectors?? also the gaskets between the lower and upper Intake manifolds could cause this if they were not installed in the proper position.. If you have a scan tool Check Idle air controll motor...Under data stream IAC will read 0 counts this will confirm a vacumn leak
