Tickometer freaks out and mileage changed over to km

Just this past week, I got in my car to go to work and noticed that my tickometer (thats what my dad calls it. its the RPM needle) was going crazy, and my mileage set itself to km. Took it in thinking it was a short, and my mechanic thought it was problems with my remote starter. Put a diagnostic to it, and it said it was cluster. Replaced cluster, but its still doing the same thing. Does anyone know what it could be?

Toyota Vitz 2007, 1.0 L, check engine light comes on at 100 km/h and goes off after turning off engine but comes back again at high acceleration like 100 km/h. change oxygen sensor as well.


That code is actually due to the fuel pressure being too low and causing a lean condition that the oxygen sensor picks up. It is common in that vehicle. Check the fuel pump pressure, filters etc.

My odometer reading changes, it was 87,900 when i bought it. Last week it was 99,900 and today it is 88,900...What is going on? I have a 2009 toyota corolla that I bought in June 2012


There is a reading on the Lower Right that indicates if it is Km or MI, It sounds like your Instrument Cluster is going bad or someone made a mistake with the Mileage on the Oil Change Sticker.

Pay close attention for the next few days and see what happens....

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.

CRV 2007 Fuel Mileage Indicator


It's probably like the old manual fuel gauge needle where it would take longer to get from 'F' to midway than from midway to 'E'. We all know that according to the gauge the last bit of gas goes faster. I think the digital readout is doing the same thing. I don't know why though.
