    My car does the exact same thing. I have been told it's the fuel pump, vaccuum leak, timing belt spark plugs, distributor, but all seem to be fine. I did replace the thermostat the day before it happened and i bumped the ground wires going to the thermostat housing. Could this have something to do with it?

I had this exact problem today, when you're about to start the car, the engine cranks yet the car wont start and the needle of speedometer bounces up and down randomly, the solution is check the wires to the self-start-dynamo, they might have gotten shorted with the wires of the meter or distributor, its just a small wire problem nothing serious.

Speedometer bounces from current speed down to zero (where it sometimes sticks)


It won't be a cable, as it's impossible for a cable driven speedo to perform this way.
It's an electronic speedo.

Check and/or replace the speedo sensor in the gearbox housing.

Rpms bounce up and down while accelerating


When bouncing, does the engine speed go up and down. If not, the gauge may be bad, or if the engine sounds like it speeds up, try cleaning the throttle body by spraying throttle body cleaner into the intake/throttle and wipe clean with a clean cloth. Do this 2x's. You will have to remove the intake pipe that connects to the filter box and intake. After cleaning this, it may seem hard to start for a second, it's because of the cleaner. Don't worry it will start.

1999 honda civic 1.6L very intermittent no start/stall no codes happened twice in 2 months when cold stalls very intermit when warm in gear


IT SOUNDS LIKE A FUEL PUMP OR A IGNITION PROBLEM A INDICATION OF A IGNITION PROBLEM IS THE TACHOMETER SMETIMES WILL START TO BOUNCE UP AND DOWN. CHECK FOR SPARK WHEN IT DIES IF THERE IS NO SPARK THAN IT IS A IGNITION PROBLEM. TO CHECK THE FUEL PUMP TURN THE KEY OFF THEN TURN FORWARDTO THE ACC POSIION AND LISTEN FOR THE FUEL PUMP TO HUMM IT WILL ONY HUMM FOR 5-10 SECONDS EACH TIME TOU DO THIS. THE REASON IT WORKS INTERMITANTLY IS BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH ELECTRONIC PARTS AND WHEN THEY WARM UP THEY FRITZ OUT LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AND GOOD LUCK
