PERFORMANCE ISSUES

1996 Chevrolet Silverado • 290,000 miles


I have recently takin a dashboard completely out of the truck for cosmetic repairs & after re-install the gauges on the cluster, (fuel & volts ), are reading off, & performance is very poor during excelleration. Performance gets worse when I turn the headlights on.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Symptoms indicates you most probably have a ground circuit somewhere that is not securely tightened.

Is the MIL indicating?

No. & Everything else, (temp, oil, mph, tach), seems to be correct

You would have to recheck your work. Might be a loose ground circuit some near the meter cluster.

Ok will give it a look over. Thanks alot for the advice man. Would this also be a cause to the poor engine performance?

Yes it could if the ground circuit is related to the engine control system.
