What would cause temperature gauge bouncing ?

Sounds like the sending unit has an intermittent short to ground. Unhook the the wire from the sending unit, and see if the needle stops jumping around. If it quits jumping around, replace the sending unit. If it still jumps around, you have a bare spot somewhere on the wire and it is hitting ground which will cause the needle to jump. Cut out the bad part of the wire and splice in a new section. That should fix it.

I have a 94 honda accord dx it runs great tell i try to pass some one or im getting on the free way when the rpms get to 3500 the needel starts to jump and the car spits ond spuders and the cheek eng

could be a mass air flow sensor problem or a crank sensor but its difficult to say as if and when the engine light comes on and you could read the codes as this vehicle is too old to have a OBDII connection then i would be inclined to suspect the computer or ECU but the only way to find out is to back the vehicle to a dealer who has the software to check it out and i do feel the cost of repair is greater than the value of a 94 car which is 18yrs old at the end of the day .

My car runs for awhile then tac starts bouncing around & car dies, won't start back up for awhile. What could this be?

First inclination is a fuel delivery problem. Several causes for this are:

  1. Clogged fuel injectors
  2. Air in fuel line
  3. Leak in fuel line
  4. Bad gas filter
  5. Bad fuel pump

Hi there!!! i need help!!!! the other day i was looking over my 95 honda civic ex and i took one of the spark wire off and i forgot to put it back on. I drove around the block and it misfire than the car...

check the spark plug wire for any nicks or burns and sometimes the spark plug could be broken and you just cant see it so if you left it somewhere where something could happen to it i would check that out. i dont see your timing jumping unless the tension was loose. also i know how much an engine viberates when you are missing a plug so check for any loose wires. good luck

I have a 2003 grand am. When i hit the gas in park or neutral the rpms get to 4k then dip down back to 3500 and bounce around there

on most newer vehicles the rev limiter is lower in park or neutral than in gear. i dont know why gm is doing this i just know that its normal. i dont know what year they started this but im guessing that is what your seeing. does it run fine in gear?

1990 honda accord rpm gauge out of wack

You probably have a faulty sensor at the transmission.

Go to your local parts store, and they can give you the part and how to install it. It's pretty easy.
