your foot...the more you push the gas pedal the higher the gauge goes, otherwise... a bad gauge (most expensive--and rare) or a bad SIGNAL to gauge(less expensive and common) up on the circuit testing..:) everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:)

What rpms are used to upshift and downshift a eaton fuller 18 speed?

You can do it at pretty much any RPMs, so long as your timing is right. I can hit gears upshifting at 1300 or 1900 RPMs with no problem. What the ideal shift range is will depend on the engine. As a general rule of thumb, most people say 1400 - 1600 RPMs... personally, I like to shift a bit higher, and drop back down into the powerband when I go into the next gear, so that the engine isn't as prone to bogging down.
