I had the same problem with the tach on my 92 Camaro. Tried the resistor fix but it didnt work. Finally found a tach board at the junkyard that worked for about a year. I found a new replacement tach board. Only had it for about a week but it seemed to fix the problem! Hurray!! http://www.wc-autoparts.com/new-1990-92-chevy-camaro-v8-tachometer-circuit-board/
