SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The gas gauge on my 2002 chevy venture is not

Hi:
Your tank sending unit is bad. Unfortunately, it is part of the fuel pump assembly, and the part costs around $400, give or take. plus installation labor. It is an all too common problem on GM vehicles, as I have had to change it on my last 2 GMs. If you do an internet search you will find plenty of others in the same boat!

Vibrating noise at 2-3 rpm during acceleration after car warm up.


Is there a way you can Clarify your Question? There is a lot of words that are not meaning anything.. Is 2-3 RPM an accurate comment or are you meaning 2,000 - 3,000 RPM ?

Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45...


There is more to the throttle then just the pedal. The cable at the other end by the throttle body could have been stuck or the throttle position sensor had an issue.

Oil pump is going bad in my 1999 chevy lumina


First we would need to know when this occurs. Asuming the oil level is at the full mark!. If the pressure goes up during acceleration and down at idle when engine is fully warmed up, then this is normal. An engine requires 10 psi of oil pressure per 1,000 rpm ( ex. 20 psi at 2,000 rpm, 25 psi at 2,500 rpm, and so on ) . If the gauge is moving back and forth erratically at idle , i would say the gauge is bad. If it drops to 0 while accelerating I would say your oil pump is bad. If from time to time it seems to work and other times it seems not to work, I would say the oil pressure sending unit for the gauge is bad. If the pump failed you would start to here a Knocking noise from the engine in a short period of time. Use the above scenario's to narrow down what it may be.

Could be a bad computer not supplying right fuel injector pulses. This happened to my 1990 cadillac deville at about 35 mph, it would buck and miss.
Also, I would flush the coolant system and install new coolant.

Speedometer not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500


Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.

Maybe a transmission problem?


If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".

95 GMC Sierra 1500Rpm gauge always at 10000rpm or below.


This could be as simple as the needle is stuck on your gauge or the gauge may need to be replaced. Thousands of these in salvadge yards and not extremely expensive. First make sure you are getting a good connection between the gauge and rpm sending unit this is easily checked. I suggest getting a chilton or haynes manual for aroung $20 It will be well worth it if you have any other problems later. Also much cheaper than the $90 an hour for labor for a mech. Who it will ony take about 15 minutes to test this.
