    What sort rpm-s car should do when driving 60 mph. Or even better if you can tell 3rd and 4th gear rpm-s.

    My tacho doesn't work always, usually when starting up, it might take couple of minutes till it awakes. Any ideas?

    And third is car has died suddenly(only 3 times in a month), when stationary in traffic and in D or 2. Restarts without problem.

    And revs are going up and down when engine has warmed up, I read about it from v8sho, but can someone tell me what's the fix.

    I'm trying to figure out how my sho gearbox works, it is bit struggling with gear changes when on d, but when on 2, it seems to work fine through all gears?. When I'm doing ~56-60 mph, revs are at 2000 or just over it. So that should be 4th gear then.
