Question about 2000 Pontiac Sunfire
OK is around 2000 rpm cruising at 60mph (slightly more uphill) You should be at about 1700 going slower in high gear around town.
What you don't want to see is a "flair" when shifting, or rpm above 2500 at cruising speed except uphill. There are many things that influence rpm while driving...road conditions, uphill, downhill, tire size etc. but these numbers are a good "ballpark" reference. Your own experience with your car is the best baseline. If rpm is different than what you have gotten used to as "normal" you should have it checked out.
