|02blacksvt||Well I have now noticed when I have the issue that I can hear like rattling it sounds like a glass jar of change being shook up. That's the best way to describe it.|

|02blacksvt||Okay so my fear of it being a clutch or throw out bearing or any of that is not possible? It's probably just a sensor like that VSS or TPS? Sound more likely?|

Yes, they probably are related to your other "engine don't run right" problems.

The speed sensor is in the transmission, the clutch is before the transmission, if the clutch is slipping than the transmission will not "speed up" with the motor RPMS, because it is no longer coupled tightly to the motor.
Slipping clutch is the same as pushing the clutch pedal down.

|02blacksvt||Ps, no dash lights came on but I have noticed lately and I don't think this has anything to do with my current problem but when I'm driving through town and put it in neutral and start to slow down my idle rpms drop to about 6-700 and battery light comes on and the car will act like its going to die or it will just die. Oh and ps, I discovered at work that my CEL bulb is blown!!! ): I put a obd11 reader on it and I have a few codes. Cylinder one misfire , evap leak , bank 1 o2 sensor and this is an odd one, advanced variable camshaft timing??|

|02blacksvt||No the ca wouldn't actually speed up when this occurred, although it would seem like it was in neutral and would just rev the motor. I work at a shop and I talked to a few of the guys and they said it could possibly be the clutch going out, and it is just free spinning when the problem happens which could potentially make the Rpms and speedo jump like that correct? I don't know how right they are?|

|Kipp||did any lights on the dash come on? battery or engine or anything else?|

I missed that very important detail about the speedo.
(why it is important to clearly describe the problem)
I would lean towards in intermittent open circuit, loose wire, bad ground, loose relay, that kind of thing.

|CaptainRyan||Just for clarrification the tach and spedo jumped - Did the car accelerate when this occurred? or did it just begin to run like crap? I have seen this in a 1998 honda where the main relay was going bad and intermitantly killing power to the PCM. I'd check for a loose connector at the PCM and then start checking grounds|

|02blacksvt||Would that also cause the speedo to jump like that as well?|
