At steady speeds the rev counter will drop back a couple of hundred rpm and then bounce back - no change in engine performance

Take it out of overdrive while towing
the Rev counter is known as a Tachometer
if there is truly no change in engine RPM then this could just be a faulty sensor

Ford tick over problem

The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.
