Mine did this. It was the Crank Position Sensor. The replacement did not need to 'relearn'.

What is causing the fast Idle and slowing down


well gee, there are 50 reasons.
did you scan the PCM yet, if not ,why not?
when the idle surges, that means.
NO RPM ranges stated, if super low rpm check EGR.

1: engine lean and ISC dead, or cant handle the huge engine power drop..The PCM can even make this worse!, buy hunting the ISC to find spec, idle and failing... to...
2: or any of 50 other things causing huge engine power drop and PCM can't maintain idle controls.
super lean burn.(bogging)
super rich burn, misfire for 50 reasons.

i cant hear your engine,nor feel it, or see it shake from gross misfiring.
no can i drive it and see/feel power loss,
can I?
asking net bunny's this (blind as bats)
is "OVER THE TOP" no?
so here , ill toss the dice for you
and guess gross misfiring.
ever get a tuneup this decade, if not bingo , no?

and the others...

http://jeepdied.com/Misfire101.html

link even has the 50 cause list, to show the futility of guessing!
we do 1 to 10 tests. and find it.
for sure.

as you can see EFI systems are complex.
gue$$ is not only expensive but can net you 2 problems easy.

Why does my Accord intermittently start and die?


Look at your tachometer, it should be at least 750 RPM...if you have a manual, look for the exact Idle RPM.

If the idle speed is too slow it can cause the engine to quit, sometimes even if you just step on the brake.

Hope this helps.

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

Fast rev problem


Can you tell if the engine speed increased ?
Something in the transmission could be slipping, or the tach could be faulty.

Hello My 18 year old neighbour bought his first car last week, a '95 Chrysler Stratus 2.0 with manual gear box. Now the tachometer is broken, I was told that there were some plastic parts inside it...


the engine has a rev limiter inbuilt,so after 6250 revs it will cough and sputter.the rev counter is for people who drive to strict rev limits to conserve fuel,and the obvious drivers who drive to the max power/engine revs for "fun"most men drive to the "sound" of the engine,so a rev counter is excess to requirements....save your money.(once he gets his "no claims discount" down he will buy a bmw anyway.........)

Engine light is on, revs to over 8000 RPM ... check gas cap as instructed by owner guide and said to drive 3 days and it should shut off .. now rev'ing over 8000 RPM


not a good situation! could blow your engine!! take it to a qualified honda dealer, and have them run code check on it- may be 'tps'- throttle position sensor. the code read may cost more than the fix! however, 8k rpms aren't healthy for your engine- so, check and fix may be cheaper than replacing engine! could also be your fuel vapor recovery canister is 'over -loaded', but unlikely!
good luck!

Car: Nissan Maxima SE 1997 tachometer broken


the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

Error code po113


the error P0113 still comes up even after a new sensor was installed and the transmission shifts very hard. Found a break in one of the wires to the sensor. Soldered it back to gether. Found that the engine has a limit to the rpm when rev-ing in neutral.
Thanks
