squirly gauges and downshifting on highway
Yesterday i started my car to leave work and I switched of my A/C and the car died. I have only had this car for 3 weeks so I didn't think much of it I knew it had some kinks and was planning on doing a tune up this weekend. After I started driving I noticed that the volts were at 15+. My 96 also had squirly gauges and I thought this was just a bonnie thing and continued with my drive home. while driving the car sputtered and the gauges went to 0 and back to normal like when you start it and also a chime went off. This happened 2 more times on the way home and was hoping that I could get to work and back so I could give it a good tune up this weekend. No check engine light
This morning it was find until on the highway the tack and spedo both went down while the car was doing 65 with a sputter. The car shifted into 2nd and when the spedo started to go back up it shifted into drive. The volts were at 15 when this happened and I didn't notice what the other gages were doing. The check engine light came on then off.
As I was in the parking lot at work I noticed that my volts were at 15 and my oil pressure was below 40. If I switch on the A/C the volts go to around 14 and the oil pressure goes above 40.
Don't know what to think of it. Any help would be appreciated.
