Re: HELP!!!!

Does your engine actually rev up and down or does just the needle flop around?
If you have messed with your cluster (ie: painting rings) you may have damaged the axle which the tach needle rotates on. They are pretty fragile.
If it's just your needle flopping around, you won't cause any damage to your engine unless you are bouncing off the rev-limiter so keep it reasonable.
It'll just be annoying until you replace it.

Re: HELP!!!!

Do you have a CHECK ENGINE light on?!

Bc I had that back then and I kept having that bouncy up n down revv around 4000 RPM and it was due to my VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) crapping out on me!!! After replacing that I was good to go!!!

Re: HELP!!!!

Back when i first bought my 98 in 2002 this happened to me. I have an automatic, and when it went to shift from 3rd to 4th, it would slip out of gear and rev really high. I had to let my foot off the gas until it caught. I couldnt accelerate in 4th at all or it would slip back out. Had to get the transmission replaced, 4th gear was dead. Thankfully i bought an extended warranty that covered the whole thing. That was at about 60k miles. Im at 159k now, and havent had a problem since.

P.S. My check engine light never came on for it. Go figure.
