1997 Cobra - factory Tach is starting to act up. Sometimes works perfect, other times may go to 2000 stay there, if you rev engine it will jump up and start working again. This problem is starting to happen daily. What should I check?

Hopefully someone has a solution to this issue.
If I bang the dash above the tach it moves a litle bit and may work for a little while, then other times it works perfect.
I did notice that when it gets to about 6,000 rpm is does not appear to be accurate also. This is kind of scary as I don't want to over-rev the motor.

Your Cobra has a "rev limiter", it won't let you do anything you are not supposed to do. I cannot help you on the tachometer situation as I have never heard of anyone having that problem, maybe someone else can jump in here?
