: Fellow '02 pilots...
: I've started to notice on shifting that my tach is showing wild swings and it sure isn't reflecting the actual engine rpm. What is going on? Do I have a dried out cable that is developing a twist under load that is then released on shifting, thereby causing these wild swings up to the redline? Anybody experienced such a phenomenon? And yes, I REALLY am lifting on the gas when I shift and the engine isn't revving that high!

Mike has some good ideas, and I am sure it'll fix your trouble. I had the same problem on mine and it was just a case of heat cracked wires at the distributor. It's only something like 16 guage wire and it gets very brittle. It's gonna be that or the grounds...
