    i was driving home from the shore today i was in third gear and my tach spun all the way around and pegged itself past the trip mileage on the other side of the peg. it would wind back to almost what would be 8,000 rpms on some of my shifts, but otherwise nothing. thankfully i know the car just by sound and gear since i've been driving it for 8 years. checked the fuses nothing looked blown. has anyone ever had a similar problem?

    my car is the same way...sometimes it will flip back around and either sit on the bar like my car is not running or it will work correctly. i have searched and searched and found no solutions.

    i'm going to be really pissed if this car starts having problems non stop. it has 76k on the body and 25k on the new motor.

    Same as above. I put another cluster in and it worked fine after that.
