SOURCE: my rpm gauge drop after 30 minutes idle

Hi there

I sugeest you open up the distributor and make sure that ALL the wires connected to the Ignition Module is fitting snugly onto each of the terminals. The BLUE wire is normally the RPM connection. Also see if the terminals on the outside of the Distributor are clean and making good contact. If needed you can unplug the socket, spray it clean with Carburettor Cleaner and lubricate it with normal Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly). Follow the Wiring Harness to the Fire Wall and do the same with the other Connecting Sockets. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Good Luck!!!

a dirty or faulty MAF sensor can cause proplems like this. try cleaning it with CRC MAF cleaner you can get it at just about any autoparts store. the MAF is located on the air intake disconnect the electrical connection and remove the sensor be careful not to damage the fragile filaments inside. there is no need to wipe it just spray it clean and let air dry be sure to spray all parts plug, filaments everything

Whats wrong with Helen?


The speed sensor might be bad. I used to own a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the same symptons. The car will start, but will not pass the 1st or 2nd gear, the speedometer will be at 0. I replaced the speed sensor and all the problems went away.

While driving the RPM & Speedometer needles were dropping to zero and then going back up. The other day it finally dropped to zero and never went back up. We thought it was the fuel pump and replaced...


Your problem sounds like a faulty ignition switch--I'm basing this on the fact that if you jiggle/hold the key in a certain way, your car will run. It should be relatively simple to swap it out.
Note that the ignition switch comes in 2 parts: (1) the lock cylinder for the key and (2) the electrical switch behind the lock cylinder. Your lock cylinder (usually, the more expensive part) is probably fine; the wear or loose wire is most likely on the electrical piece of the ignition switch.
If you're handy, this may be a self-repair--you'll need the car's key to help release the lock cylinder so you can get to the ignition switch. However, you may need to disassemble some or all of the steering column shrouding to get to the switch connectors (this will be an unplug / replace kind of item). Before doing any of that, make sure you disconnect the battery, as you don't want to accidentally cross a wire and end up with a face full of exploding air bag. If you take this to a garage, I suspect that this would not be a major repair in terms of cost.

Fuel starvation. How well do you trust your fuel gauge?
Also check you gas tank for damage, dent or otherwise.
Possible at speed fuel shifts towards fuel pump and away
when stopped.

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm


This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.
