Yes it is a problem indicator. It is the speed sensor . if it is racking up mileage faster to you might find it better to replace it.

Have the dealer do a speedometer accuracy test. They have a special tool that can electronically read the speed and then compare it to the readout of the odometer.

Why does the tach and speedometer now spike when starting engine?


depends. newer vehicles do this just for effect, basically for you to go "ooooohhh" however with older vehicles ( pre 2006) this could be a code that the computer system is giving you, if the needle spikes all the way to the end of the speedometer/tachometer then back down to zero, its most likely effect. but if the needle spikes to 3 numbers (ex-90, 60, 30. then back to zero) its trying to tell you theres something wrong under the hood, could be as simple as a fuse or 02 sensor...
