So this new to me ****** has a weird problem. I think the tach is reading around 1200 rpm high. I scanned the codes and found a stored P0741 code. And was worried that the tranny had problems. But, the car seems to shift just fine. I can see someone has had the tranny pan off. Possibly a TC solenoid? Anyways I tracked the RPM's with my code scanner, and it reports lower RPM's than the Tachometer shows.
I tend to believe the code scanner is right. 175 miles to bring the car home, and I burned less than 3/8's tank of fuel. If it really was turning 4K RPM's for almost 2 hrs, I would have consumed a lot more fuel?
The battery cables definitely need attention. They have cheap walmart battery ends crimped on them. And are showing green corrosion. That will be my first order of business. But could that really effect the tach that way?
Time is going to be tough in the near future. I've gotta pull the engine on the Foz to replace a leaking tranny input shaft seal. And the Wife's Bean is waiting for me to install the new front lower control arms, and the Whiteline rear control arms that have been sitting in the garage for over a month.
This can't be right?
