Default tachometer on a 2010 ranger xl 4 cyl manual tranny...

2010 ranger xl regular cab.... 4 cyl... manual tranny....


Is it me or this engine slowly lowers down the RPMS versus other cars. my older v8 2002 tundra lowered its rpms much kuiker....


also is the tachometer acurate?? it seems as if it is like when it moves up and down the rpms the needle is like stiff versus smooth moving.... like my old v8 tundra that I used to have.....

The tach on mine seems to work fine, have a Honda Accord 5 spd I drive also and dont notice a difference. Yes, the RPM's are a bit slow to drop between gears, normal.

I agree it is normal. It took me a bit at first getting used to this where in the past cars/truck the RPM dropped quicker.

Ok I was wondering the exact same thing myself, glad to hear its not me or something. Also btw does anybody else notice that its worth when running the A/C compressor? (aka the rpms drop even slower than normal).
