Why is it when driving the RPM gauge drops or jumps up?

When I'm accelerating and get to required speed my RPM gauge either drops and steadies or jumps up then steadies back. Also if i push her too much to go faster too quickly it starts acting like the transmission is slipping. I've figured out that if i stop (in a safe place, of course) and cut the engine and wait a few minutes and restart the engine the transmission is fine again. I was told i needed new intake gaskets, i did that and it's still happening? could it be a sensor?

Is it just your tachometer or can you feel the vehicle surging? Any errors codes or is your check engine light on?

I agree with oldturkey - the first step is to check the computer memory for trouble codes. From your description, you might have a crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor that is starting to fail.

My service engine soon light is on and the code it's throwing is multiple misfire, but that is a whole different issue. I know what that is from. It wasn't throwing any codes when this started happening but i was told i needed my intake gaskets replaced. But after having that done it didn't fix the problem. It is just the tachometer jumping unless i come to a stop then the car sometime, not always tries to lunge forward.

Okay, thank you Bill for your insight. I will have my mechanic check the sensors you mentioned yesterday. As for the multiple misfire code, i need to replace 2 of my coil packs and get new plugs and wires before i'll know the extent of the over-haul i'll need to do. But i do appreciate all your help and wisdom.

Need help i have an 2005 toyota sienna and when i start it it goes straight to the number 1 it use to idle in 0 area and now when i drive it and com to the stop light and to move off it jumpor i have to rev it to move can anyone help me please i have change transmission fluid and filter this pass week already.

A multiple misfire can certainly cause the engine to surge. You said you know what this was from - please elaborate.

The tachometer is just showing what the engine is already doing; it does not affect how the engine runs.

I still say there is something else going on in your computer system. Checking trouble codes is only one thing to check. Most scan tools can also check sensor values while the engine is running, and if you know what the sensor should be reading, a bad one can be spotted easily.

that wasnt much help lol thanks

I was having the surging issue as well. I noticed after I had the harmonic balancer and idler pulley replaced. Apparently the mechanic was unaware that the crankshaft needed to have a relearn done after replacing those parts. Over a year later, replacing God knows how many sensors and other parts, I finally found out it was just a simple relearn.

How do you make a car relearn? I just replaced the timing on mine and took off the balancer and idlers and now it's shaking pretty bad

The tps or throttle position sensor must check the voltage and if it is defective it must have to be change. I'd did that to my mazda protege5. The rpm is jump and drop while I'm driving. And my problem to my car was gone.

Now what if the car is doing this and no computer codes are thrown???? Mine has been doing weird crap with the RPM and picking up speed but sheesh man alive no computer codes can be thrown to help solve the issue.

Hey friends if your car RPM goes down to zero then do following steps.

1.Check your fuel pump

2.Make it Throttle body clean

3.Make your injector clean

4.Check your RPM Sensor

5.Check your car Emulator

6.Check if there is any gas leakage near by your car engine.

Do All the above your car will be smooth and there will be no problem related to RPM.

Why is the rpm staying on 0 on 99 Camry when sitting still or driving

hello I just changed my fuel pump after one night taking it and getting gas and the next morning it would not start so everyone told me it was probably my fuel pump so I changed that and then I also changed all three of my relay switches.we couldn't get it to still start so we left it for a few days to see what was going on with it and try to restart it is still was not trying to start up but it was cranking over and then my friend brought over a reader and it we plugged it in and we cleared all the codes because it said there was no codes. So he basically cleared the computer so then once he did that it started but now my RPMs when I'm sitting at idle is to the middle of 1 and 0 and it's also like not wanting to shift right when I'm going what could that be???

Also add that I have a 2006 Nissan Armada I'm sorry I forgot to post that

This could possibly be your output speed sensor, related to the transmission. It controls the odometer. Generally this part is inexpensive, and you could locate it, and possibly change it yourself. Hope this helps!

A car that is 26 years old will have to be put to rest. How much shoe polish can you apply to a pair of 26 year old used shoes? All your car problems are happening because when 1 item is fixed, the next item, which is now many years older, is now over worked and its that items time to quit working. Its best to trade in and purchase a vehicle atleast from 2008 to now.

My car is a 94 grand prix with 319k miles on her...still original engine and tranny....still runs strong and more dependable than any of those newer cars out there...ull find the culprit and shes gonna be good as new...keep up the good work

I have a 1992 Mercury Topaz, a 2002 Honda CRV, both running awesome, they have some problems, but they are fine. The 1992 Blazer is an awesome car to have, after finding the culprit you are most likely going to have car for a while! Don't give up!

I would look into cleaning the throttle body you may not be getting a good air to fuel mixture, along with that you may clean the MAP sensor or mass air pressure sensor it maybe telling your cars computer to take in more air because it is dirty.

Hi I'm having somewhat the same issue with my 95 Honda prelude I've change new spark plugs and wires, new dizzy. It idles fine when parked, it's not so great when I drive it starts to jerk every time I tried to shift gears, (manual transmission) but besides me replacing the clutch is there anything I can check for??? Also need help

I would look into the idle air control valve

I'd also experienced that problem to mazda protege5 2002 for this past week. It jump and drop the rpm while I'm driving. I did check the voltage on the tps or throttle position sensor and I found that it's a defective, so I replace or change it. And my problem to my car is gone. Hope this can help.

Hello,

If throttle body is cleaned, can it cause "unmetered air" to enter the intake manifold and disturb the fuel mixture, and as a result the ECU will dump extra fuel into the air-fuel-mix ?

Spark plugs are Irridium type mentioned life 80,000-120,000 km. Can the high fuel comsumtion ruin the spark plugs just after 50,000 kms ? Car is honda civic R18a.
