This is likely a faulty speedometer unit. They use very small drive gears and if the gears become worn or chipped (just through normal service) it will become very erratic at your most common speeds and will probably calm down as you accelerate. Let me know what else I can do for you.

Speedometer


could be a worn speedometer cable that may be loose or stripped, causing it to catch only ever so often, or slip occasionally, making the needle jump, or bounce, also check the ground for a good conection, a loose ground can cause the same problem

Hello: This is a common problem. The cluster is faulty. Check battery cables for clean and tight. Check all grounds. I don't think it could have anything to do with pulling away from a stop. Is the transmission slipping?

Check your battery ground wire, and your positive wire make sure that they are tight with no contamination. The popping issue sounds like you have a loose wire somewhere.

Buick Regal problem-help!!!!!!!!


Have you done the basic maintenance. Spark plugs, oil change, ect.? As for the fans, if you have a/c one of them should only come on when your a/c is on. The other is regulated by a relay so when your car reaches a certain temp it kicks on.
