 Speedometer, mileage, and tachometer rarely work. sometimes the needle on the speedometer will flucuate back and forth,wildly, and other times stick on a speed. at times the tachometer will work and so i can judge my speed. the fuel gauge was not working, until the fuel filter and pump were changed in february, but if all the other gauges are not working, then it also stops.*ak
