How does the motor run?

Forget about the trans, lets see what the actual issue is

I would think an issue with the tach itself if the motor is running ok.

Check connections at the coil and the back of the cluster

2000 GMC Jimmy starts and runs OK, except when you might say it surges and lacks power a little. The tack jumps around when this happens.
