Re: RPM Goes Crazy >>video plz help!

No rev limiter lol

Do you have a stock ecu?
Is your tranny fluid leveled

If it was the distributor you'd be in limp mode...

Might just be the cluster try swapping it with a buddys

Re: RPM Goes Crazy >>video plz help!

this problem is distributor related. the reading on your RPM's come from the distributor. check your coil like abstract said and check your distributor. 100% sure its your problem

Re: RPM Goes Crazy >>video plz help!

Looks like you also need to do some maintenance or at least reset the gauge indicator

Re: RPM Goes Crazy >>video plz help!

lol just pop ur hood and look to see if the coil wire is loose. But to be honest if it was "Just" the coil wire, when your tac starts jumping the car looses all power then cuts back in then cuts back out. But hey man wouldn't hurt to check..

Its something that came about with OBD2 basically the engine will be down on power when in limp mode, I believe it's to reduce risk of damaging things.

Re: RPM Goes Crazy >>video plz help!

Hey idk if u figured out where ur coil is yet, The bottom wire on the dizzy leads to it. From i know, most tach problems in hondas lead to the coil. It looks like the diagram i have. U might want to look up how to trouble shoot it. It could be something between the coil and the tach as well. I.e. chafed wire or somthing. Try not to just throw parts at it, I'm guilty of that as well. Good luck, by the way, car sounds clean.

Definitely Agree ^^ with mob5ta on this one, And like he said above with the diagram. Follow the spark plug wires back to the dis cap, the bottom wire that doesn't go back to the spark plugs follow that back. Check all connections
