    Mine has been doing the same thing for over a year now since I bought it... I tried and tried to fix it.. I don't look at it anymore. I put a manual gauge in,, It fluctuates SOME but not near as much as the factory gauge does.

    What can get wet

    Any ideas on this? I went through some ruts full of water yesterday going to a deer stand and it done the same thing. It cuts out when you accelerate.. You can only run about 35 or 40 until whatever it is dries back out. No light, no codes

    What can get wet

    I'm kinda wondering if I have some bad spark plug wires. I may buy a new set tomorrow and if that doesn't fix it , I guess I change the coil pack off my 92 parts truck. It idles fine, but if you try and get above 1500 RPM it cuts out spits sputter pops. No CEL , no codes
