Faulty dial, remove the instrument panel and spray some switch cleaner in to the back of the dial, if this doesn't work you'll need to replace the dial

The rev counter in my 2000 corolla is reading incorrectly


Macsry2k answer makes the the most trouble shooting sense. Problem is definitely electric. Since the alternator is where the RPM reading comes from, this is the best place to start. Good luck!

Feul smell in car when cold out


The car will run richer in cold weather, especially at start. You may have an exhaust leak. Put something over the tail pipe and listen for hissing under the car. Any hiss is an exhaust leak, must be fixed.
The gauge thing may be an old, loose alternator belt, giving low voltage when things are cold and stiff. A new belt may help. Do a voltage check while watching the gauges..

2003 ford ranger intermittent idle


One possibility is a buildup of dirt and sludge in and around the idle air control valve. The buildup causes the idle air valve to stick.

Engine pulling at 3000 rpm and above. Once it gets to 3000 rpm it feels like something is pulling it back, releasing, pulling back again and so forth.


Sounds like a turbo problem, check all electrical connections and vaccum hoses, any engine lights on? Then it's time to take it in, I assume you have a good VW expert just around the corner who is honest, reasonable, and reliable,,,, sometimes it happens! Hope this helps, and look into it right away, it can cause other problems if let go $$$$.

Fule gauge speedometer and rpm gauges stopped


Go to the fuse box and change the fuse for "Gauges". I think this might solve the problem.

I just wanted to know the optimal shifting points to do 70mph comfortably. Should the car be at 2500-3000 rpm in 5th gear at 60-65 mph? I typically shift at or around 3k rpm in every gear, and the car...


How many gears does your car have? One of my cars has to do a little over 3000rpm to maintain 70-75 in 5th gear. My other car has to do about 3000rpm to maintain 65-70 in 5th gear.

It all depends on the number of gears your car has and the gearing ratio. The second car I have is geared more optimally for city driving and gets better fuel economy going slower than fast highway speeds.

Having driven several rental cars too I would say anywhere between 2500 to 3000 is reasonable for the average car. If you are driving a vehicle like say a porsche, bmw or audi they may have more gears and may be at a lower rpm at 70mph than your car.

Has over 100,000 miles on it. drives around town alright but when you get it on the highway it only gets up to 50 mph at around 3000 rpm. I suspect the clutch.


Hi.
You can test the clutch by attempting a wheel spin. If you raise the revs then drop the clutch in 2nd - you should get a **** of acceleration or possibly a stall. If you just get a gradual acceleration with possibly a "bite" when moving - then yes you need a new clutch. Also any smell of burning you notice will indicate contamination of clutch due to oilseal leakage, Often better to replace the main crank seal while the G'box is off on high milage vehicles - as it's quick to do at the time.

Weird idle when clutch is disengaged


Sounds like a bad idle air motor (That controls idle) But you must pull compiter codes first (The computr tells it what to do)

Question? is the engine's heat normal, if not there's sensor that boosts idle when the engine is cold

If you removed the thrmostat, put it back in.FIRST
