Could be a bad instrument cluster (bad stepper motor) or the vehicle speed sensor is bad. Does cruise control work, if it does then it is the cluster.

Do the RPM gauge supose to move up on dash when cranking?

The tach readout is controlled by software in the Instrument cluster (IC) based on the values sent from the VCM/PCM. The readout on your scanner should show the correct rpm values (120 to 240 is wrong). Therefore, if the engine is running normally, the computer is probably not sending the correct values to the IC, but the crank sensor is OK.

Switching gears from 1st to 2nd

there is a computer that controls your rpm gauge, your speedo, and your shift. check that and your speed sensor. the sensor is faster and easier.

I put my car in drive and will not move why?

it can only be 2 things.
1: transmission slip
2: engine died, or has weak power.

if you know what engine rpm is, you can solve this riddle.
B: Rpm sicks low, car dont move, bad engine (weak, or 100 other reasons. but (bad engine power)

it be impossible for me to express RPM with sounds,
so only an RPM gauge works. does your car have one.? "dash"?
im too lazy to look but, most cars have sub models that dont have this
important gauge.

The oil pressure gauge goes from 0 to all the way up and the needle moves back and forth while driving it checked oil its good now its clicking underneath the car and it felt like the transmission was...

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.

Car shuts off and gets no spark it will run for about 4 and a half then takes about 10-15 mins. to restart

Please look into your rpm gauge if you have one when you are cranking the motor does the gauge slightly move up and down if it does not it is your cam sensor please email me at so we can chat about it if the rpm gauge does not move I will guide you threw the rest.
