Thanks for trusting us with your problem. I have trained in the automotive field and currently work as a lead technician. I will be helping you today

The tach wire at the distrubutor has a bare portion between the distrubutor and the cluster.

Fix the bare portion of the wire and it will stop the problem at hand. This should be a blue color wire the wire runs up under the hood to where the coil is located.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Is that blue wire touching ground in between. A year ago the z club had a fix but I moved and can't find my paperwork on it. I will have to pay a wiring shop $ 75. per hour to do the repair as the car isn't in my town right now. How sure are you ? Mike

I am positive.

You will not be charged much. They can remove the wire and re run a new one which is less than 1 hour of time.

But I am sure you can locate it have someone pull on it from the cluster itself watching outside the firewall until you can see the area.

but I am positive for sure without a doubt this is causing your concern.

I want my $29.00 back. The fix isn't even close. The blue wire on the coil is to ground on the negitive side. and there is at least 4 connectors in the harness before the wire goes through. No way to wiggle a wire and find it.. There is a resister under the carpet on the passenger side and I think thats what needs changing. I drove 125 miles to get to the car, only to find the wrong answer... I'm done!!!!!!!! Mike
