Tach Query

709 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  2redscorts
Can anyone tell me why my tach would constantly sit at 3100 rpm regardless of what gear i´m in? If I rev the engine a lot it may go up 100 rpm but never more than that. When I turn off the ignition it goes down to where it should.

what kind of tach is this? The stock tach in the instrument cluster? Or is it an aftermarket tach?
The tach has a sensor on the engine which is run by a cable...it´s probably loose or gone bad.
How do I locate this cable? The mechanic told me to beat on my dash cuz he thinks it may have seized up. Who knows!
You could look at the picture in a Chilton or Haynes repair manual. Should answer your question. Sorry I´m not much help, but I´m actually posting cause I don´t want to see your query fade away unanswered.

How bout it, anyone with first-hand knowledge where that cable runs, what it looks like, howta fixit????
Good luck 2fords...
