If you don't shift it!!!
Sit in the car in neutral, rev the car to 2000 revs then apply the break firmly whilst still holding the car at 2000 revs. If the idle drops back down then the car is drive by wire... so ive been told anyway! :)
Do not go over 40mph or your engine will rev to high and be damaged
You may need to adjust the throtle or idle of the car. In older cars this is as simple as tightening a cable. So when the car is just idling it will naturally rev higher and not stall.
If the torque converter is slipping your engine will start to stall and cut out eventually you will be driving and the car will rev in the drive position as if it is in neutral go to a transmission shop and get the tech to test drive your car.
It is pronounced rev, like rev up a car
Because it has a rev. limiter
Over drive on any car is ther last gear for the transmission at hi-way speeds. The engine rev rate is lower, while the car goes faster. If you leave the stick in the D position, with the o/drive on, the trans. will do the work by itself.
If the vehicle is in neutral or park and it doesn't rev over half throttle, it is the rev limiter (governor). That is normal.
It is not good for your car if you rev your engine too much. Many people like to do this because they think it makes their car sound cool.
What car is it? what year? is it a diesel or petrol? could be you r base idle?? but need know more info..... does it stall in drive with foot on brake? does it rev high?my car is a 07 Chevrolet Colorado,standar
Manual transmission car then the clutch has failed. If it is an automatic then the A/T has failed. Check the fluid level. If it is full seek professional help. If it is low add the correct A/T fluid. Do not overfill.
They rev out to around 9500, give or take a little bit depending on the car
'Natural causes' apparently.
With the introduction of the sports car
You will probably find that your engine management light is illuminated. The reason that the car will not rev higher than 2000 revs is because it is running in "limp mode" and this is controlled by the engine management system kicking in. If you find the engine management fault & reset the system then the car should run as normal.
Your car is gearing down to first and to do that it has to rev a little
It's not warmed up yet.
Your power brake booster is shot.
Broken/disconnected throttle cable
The transmission or clutch may be slipping.
There is no use for rpm in a car A: I an assuming you mean the rev counter in cars. The rev counter tells the driver how fast the engine is turning its revolution per minute. In a situation where you can't here the noise of the engine, it is useful to see on a gauge how may rev the engine is doing. Max revving a car for prolonged periods can blow the engine.
i have a 200 f150 p/u if I put my foot into it it will accellerate and shift as it should until 60 mph. at that time it will over rev and I have to slow down and dissengage over drive.
This is not good for your transmission clutch and tires.To do it, put the car in 1st gear. rev the engine up to about 2000 rpm. the release the clutch. it the car is an automatic hold the brake and gas then release the brake and floor it. front wheel drive cars usually don't burn out as well. starting with the wheels wet will help. more powerful engines help too.AnswerThis is not good for your transmission clutch and tires.

it will eventually brake at the universal joint and at that ime you will not be able to go anywhere. it will just rev up and not go anywhere, .You caan get reconditioned ones at auto zone if available and they are life time garenteed for for time you own the car that is. russ
