1 = 1,000 rpm, 2= 2,000 rpm and so forth.
thank you. but before my engine in idle would start from 0 then progress to 1 and so forth as i pushed the accelerator
Pushing the accelerator makes the engine run faster. A tachometer is a "speedometer" for the engine, it tells you how fast the engine is turning, not how fast the car is going.
