Speedometer broke and rpms racing Ford Taurus

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Speedometer broke and rpms racing Ford Taurus

Was just driving along today, and had to slow down because of traffic in front of me. Honestly, I looked down and the speedometer was hovering at 0 mph, and not really moving anywhere. Then, at the same time as I'm driving, the rpms are racing at like 3 and 4 when I know I was only going 25-30 mph. Pulled the car over, and waited a few minutes. Turned back onto the road, and same thing happened. Just drove home, and I"m so upset. Just last week I had two new tires put on, and had the car aligned. It was driving perfect. Anyone, have any idea what this issue could be. BTW, the car wasn't overheating.

Thanks,
Rachel

Do you mean that you could hear the engine revving up real high? Or is it just the guages that are doing it?

If it was just the speedometer that stopped working id guess it could be a fuse or something but thats weird about the RPM guage.... as long as it wasnt the engine actually reving too...?
