    I have the same fluctuating rpm problem at startup every morning on my '97 Maxima. I it stalls after briefly fluctuating. I turn key a second time, giving some gas and it starts and runs OK.

I wouldn't worry about it unless you see this happening regularly over a period of time. If you got a bad batch of gas, or something along those lines, it could've caused it to happen. If it hasn't happened again, and you have no check-engine light and your fuel economy is where it usually is, I'd chalk it up to a random occurrence and not worry about it. If it starts happening more, try and note as many things as you can about the situation (ie, how long it sat, how much gas in the tank, is the engine warm or cold at startup, any recent maintenance or repairs, etc) - all of that can help a diagnosis.

DID you properly gap the spark plugs?? This will cause misfires and may cause hard or no start conditions. Also inspect all your Ignition coil boots for cracks or oil. Clean them and blow any oils in the spark plug chambers!!

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.

Since RPM meter is also important so that you can control the engine from overspeed. It is also important to repair the thing your rpm cable maybe worn out already. If it is an electronic rpm meter cold Solder in electronic lead might be the cause.

Check the tension pulley. It has an adjustment on top to set belt tension. On mine the bushing in the pulley went bad and made a rough rubbing sound. I replaced the entire unit as an assembly. Noise went away.
