Question squeaky gauges?

i drive a 95 240sx and when the tach hits about 4000rpms, it makes a squeaking kinda sound, im not quite sure how to explain it. but it stops once it shifts back down below 4000. any idea what the hell that is? its getting on my last nerves.

Only one way to tell...

Is it a constant sqeeeeaaaak or is it more of a sqeaksqueaksqueaksqueak?

If it's the first, I'd say it is a faulty guage...if so pour some 10W-40 in it, and drive in a figure 8 to spread the oil all over, or you could take out the needles, and lose some weight in the process

I know you like to advise on things that you know not of, so answer this riddle just for fun. What part of an electronic guage do you lubricate to keep it from squeaking? And are you willing to reimburse him for the cost of the guage after he "pour's some 10W-40 in it" and renders it useless?

I guess somebody's never taken apart a 240SX...Alright I'll break this down for you to understand...

Here is the dashboard:



See the circled area?...I was referring to taking off the glass covering it, and pouring some oil there, and putting the cover back on.

Jeez, some people just have to talk before they get their facts straight

...I was kidding about what I said, but I was referring for him to do what I described above lol...

I was on the other hand serious (somewhat) for the long squeak, and the shorter, rapid squeaks...because I was trying to get more information for people like you to help him

BTW I'm not paying if he listens to someone like me ...there's gotta be a law against it lol...

Does it do it in neutral, parked, revving the engine?
