SOURCE: 1995 Buick Riviera supercharged The tachometer

I had the same problem with stalling & found the throttle sensor helped. It was only a $15 part @ an aftermarket parts supplier. You'll need small fingers to get to the few screws holding it in place. Also make sure it's positioned correctly before installing & tightening the screws.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: car wont start even with jump cables

Just spinning the engine will not fix the problem. You need to know whether you are getting fuel or whether you are getting spark.
The fuel is easy. Get a can of starting fluid and briefly spray into the air cleaner 1 squirt and then try to crank the vehicle. If there is an attempt to run, you have fuel problems. If it does not attempt to run try 1 more squirt. No run means you have no spark.

It can mean there is a problem with the firing system, like timing belts or chain, or a dead coil. Your car may have Relays for both the fuel pump and the ignition.

Go to and register your car for free, then download the chassis wiring diagrams and fusebox layouts. Find the Relays. If you have no fuel, check the fuel relay. If you have no spark, check the Ignition relay. On American cars, the horn relay is often the same part number as the Ignition relay or the Fuelpump relay and can be switched.
The horn can be used as a test for the other 2 relays to find the bad one.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Tachometer not working on my 95 Toyota pickup 4x4 jumping up and down

bad tach, seems .
bad tach, or bad wires to it or power to it bad.
i dont know what engine option you have
but most use the ignitor signal to do this.
later about 1996 the ECU uses CKP sensor to run the tach directly
in that case bad tach, bad wires to tach or bad power feed to it.
it only has 3 wires.
one is bad, or its bad.

The tachometer kind of jumps around, always drops then goes back up i dont even know if its right.

have your charging system checked for free at any auto zone or advance auto parts store,your altenator may be going bad, or your battery may not be accepting the charge from the altenator. tach guages going crazy are a sign of bad altenators or bad batterys. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Car tach jumps and cover of air filter blew off.

It sounds like the engine "backfired" and blew the cover off. This and having the tach "jumping" means that the engine timing is erratic. This can be caused by the crankshaft position sensor or the ignition module. It could also be cross firing at the coil pack,if so equipped. Make sure all of the wiring to these components is good.
