Rpm meter gotta strait to 7000 when idling


Asked by Jul 09, 2016 at 11:11 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 89 camaro sounds like it's at a normal idle but
the meter jumps from 0 to 70 and stays there when
idling. It is obviously wrong because the engine
sounds like its at a normal idle. The needle sits at 0
when the car is off

Please help I can't smog without fixing this
