I Know this isn't technically a "classified" topic but I didn't want to take up space on other topics already going. Anyhow my question is this, My tach has all of the sudden started reading anywhere from 200 to 1000 rpms to high? But it does it mostly when the engine is warm? I haven't dug into it yet so I thought I'd pick some brains out there and see if anybody knows why this is happening? I'm hoping it's just a loose ground wire or something like that but I really don't know? And I hate electrical gremlins! I also noticed that when I turn the key to the left (auxillary) that when it's warm the needle goes backwards and as it gets cooler it goes forward(with the engine off of course). And when it's completely cold it doesn't move (like it's supposed to). Any idea's or better yet positive ID's for a solution?

My wife says if I spend any more money on the Chevelle she\'s gonna leave me?..... I\'ll miss her :-)
