Hello racastillo,

RPM means revolutions per minute. This is how many times the engine turns around in one minute. I am not sure what else you are looking for with the rest of your question. You will have to go into a little more depth with the problem. Regards, rcampsr

1999 Isuzu trooper oil gauge jumping on and off and lose of power when it is happening

check the connection/wires on the oil pressure sensor
this unit reports a loss of oil pressure to the ECM which will turn off the engine
a faulty connection makes it report intermittently
all this if you have no unusual noises from the engine

Crank but does not start (Error code P0642)

p0642 = sensor reference voltage a circuit low voltage
p0300 = means random misfire
check firing order connections and must be in place.
check also cables especially the high tension cable and coils for required resistance.
primary = 1.0 to 0.5 ohms
secondary = 900 to 11,000 ohms (as requires per model)

My problem is my rpm its getting wild when i start my engine.. what seem the problem and i need solution thanks...

Problem with a good tuning of the engine. If the engine was not checked on the regular maintenance schedules then it is time you did all the required one for the clocked mileage or time.
Make sure that the oil, oil filter, fuel filter was changed. secondly check on the plugs, the Ht , the firing intensity, the fuel pressure and calibration. A code check is important if there is no result but the RPM going wild can be mainly related with poor timing- firing and valve- and fuel calibration.

2002 pontiac sun fire engine cuts out at 2000 RPM and stops when you accelerate no service engine light what could be the problem

Possibly a tune up including spark plugs, fuel filter, pcv valve, air filter, and an oil change. Do include the spark plug wires if it has them.
If all of that is fine, see if the spark plugs are covered in oil... that will also cause it to run bad but not necessarily throw the check engine light.
Good luck

Theres a symbol light that turns on my sun fire panel its an arrow pointing up,what does it mean?

Is the transmission a manual? If so, then the light you mentioned is the indicator when to upshift to the next highest gear. The system was designed to help save fuel by letting you know when it is the best rpm to shift, thereby reducing engine strain and fuel consumption.

"Pulling" when speeding up

you need to change the oil thre times every 3000 miles and youll feel the difference. It happens because you take a long time to change the oil and it creates oil clots and it is harder for the pistons to move
