The throttle body needs to be cleaned. When you come off the gas pedal, the TB is not getting enough air through the idle solenoid. 1991 Imperial 1993 Imperial
I was considering a Lexus RX400h when I realized that it was very inefficient at freeway speeds 65-75 mph. Most of my driving is freeway at high speeds. How does the Toyota Highlander hybrid technology work? Is it still beneficial/cost effective at freeway speeds?
If the engine sounds loud like it's going faster than you really are it could be that you have lost your overdrive gear in the transmission. Once you hit freeway speeds, the automatic overdrive kicks in. If the engine seems to be operating normal, your tachometer might be faulty. Ken
They "reset" while driving at highway speeds.They "reset" while driving at highway speeds.

The shift speeds are computer controlled and not adjustable.The shift speeds are computer controlled and not adjustable.
At freeway speeds, only a fool breaks the two second rule. Let the car in fromt pass an obstacle, sign, roadmarker or similar and you should pass it not less than two seconds later. At urban speeds one and a half to two car lengths.
overdrive is used to save fuel economy at cruiseing speeds,for freeway or open roads.
Impossible to answer ! Different engines run at different speeds. It would depend on things like the gear ratio, cylinder timing, engine torque, road conditions etc.
Could be several things. Might be caused by a dirty fuel or air filter. Could be a problem with the transmission and/or driveline U joints. Are you getting a vibration at freeway speeds? Does your rear view mirror look clear or fuzzy when at freeway speeds?
Check and see if the fan cluch is good. Your fan. At higher speeds, the fan is not needed due to the high airflow. At low speeds and idle, you need the fan to operate to cool the car.
He speeds up , drives faster
increases the distance needed to stop your car
Overdrive is an extra gear assembly in the transmission that allows the engine to run at a lower speed (lower RPM) when you are travelling at higher speeds on the highway or freeway. For example, if I am driving my 1995 Explorer at 62 mph in drive, the engine runs at 2800 RPM. If I am driving at 62 MPH in overdrive, the engine runs around 2100 RPM.
That will depend on how fast you are driving. About 1 hr 45 minutes at highway speeds.
About 10-13 miles per gal if your speed is around 0 to 40 miles per hour. 10 -15 miles per gal if you have a combination of city and freeway speeds. 13-19 miles per gal if you do most freeway speeds. I know this because I own one. What a pain!
Not use their high beams and drive dramatically lower speeds.
Driving at speeds that exceed the legal speed limit always endangers children in the car. A pattern of driving at such speeds would likely be classified as child endangerment if it could be proved by such evidence as traffic violations.
A freeway has very few stops and a high speed limits. The arterial roads are side roads that have towns and cities along them. The speeds vary from very slow in town and some what faster between towns but not as fast as freeways.
Centrifugal force is a problem when turning at fast speeds.
The distance behind the car you are following
A longer reaction time and increased control over the vehicle.
The common cause is a failed blower resistor.
