Noob Question

What is that arrow that appears on the dash whenever you're accelerating? What does it mean?

that means to shift at that point. usually, it is set at the point where you will get good gas mileage, not when the engine should really be shifted

When you're Jeep is stock, it tells you when you are supposed to upshift your transmission.

Thanks, I don't think the engine understands that to move my tires, I have to let it rev to about 3500 before shifting

Take the bulb out.
