maybe your rpms gauge is broken.get it looked at by a professional
major vacuum leak?
It makes: 3000/60 = 50 per second
You have a vacum leak. A big one. Check all your hoses. Idle should be under 1k rpms
If your testing this with the vehicle in park it won't go over 3000 rpms because the rev limiter kicks in so you don't do damage to the engine. If you are in drive and you step on it when it's safe to do so, it should go well over 3000 rpms.
igniter is possibility
Advertised Horsepower and torque is... HP-----245 @ 4000 RPMs Torque.......355 ft. LBS. @ 3000 RPMs
No no no, 3000-4000 rpms is the average speed for highway traveling, driving too close to the red mark on your rpm is bad
3000 rpm means that the engine is doing 3000 revolutions per minute. In a lower gear at the same speed the engine would be doing more revolutions per minute.
Advertised HorsePower is :Factory 4-barrel , 225 HP @ 4600 RPMS. Torque is: 355 FT. LBS @ 3000 RPMS.
It sounds like your clutch is slipping.
carbs need to be rebiult
check for a vacuum leak on the throttle body
The torque rating for your stock 1968 Camaro 327 cubic inch engine is 235 pounds at 3000 RPMs. The torque rating at 3500 RPMs is 255 pounds.
Its cause you are low on Freon. You need to put some in but when you put it in your car needs to be reved to about 3000 rpms. The reason it doesn't work is because when your idleing you are in low rpms and there isn't alot of pressure in the compressor. But when you do move it kicks on. You will need someone to help you do it but its an easy process.
Rpms are low at that speed on level ground,around 3000 rpm
min of 5 psi at idle 45 to 68 at 3000 rpms
The first thing it sounds like is a vacuum. if not, check timing.
sounds like a fuel filter, do you have any more dignostics?
It stands for sport and when you drive with it there it lets the engine rev higher for any given speed. So say at 40MPH in drive the rpms might be 3000 and in sport at 40 mph it might be 4000 rpms.
15 LBS. at idle, and at least 40 LBS. at 3000 RPMS.
the problem is that the brakes don't work.
bad knock sensor
I rally one in Escort Mk1, limit set at 9500 rpm. Yuk www.yukspeed.com
it was a bad ignition rotor
