I wish I knew what the hell you were asking. What's the problem? The needle making noise? Is it chirping, barking, or farting? How can this needle make noise?

well whenever the needle goes between 1 to 3000 rpm as its dropping rpms it makes a ticking sound and its very prominant

I was driving my car up and down an underground parking lot trying to figure it out..I also removed the plastic behind and tried driving that way and it still persisted..I'm pretty sure its the needle because when it drops at normal idle theres no sound its only when the needle is moving it makes a ticking soun as its dropping or rising...I'm going to have to take it in but I just wanted to see if anyone had a fix on it to save me the time because I don't really have a chance to go

Definately take it in. I'm sure they can diagnose it better than we can given the information you're providing us.
