Question about 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet

1 Answer

What is "normal" rpm on a 88 vw cabrio automatic at 55mph? i'm getting 3000 rpm or so and it seems excessive, almost as if it's missing the last speed/gear. How do i determine that? It shifts decently otherwise, for a car and tranny with 250k miles

From my knowledge that is right, old cabrios have only a three gear transmission so the engine will be running higher rpms

It seems as though your electronic "lock up" on the torque converter is not actuating. TCC lockup/Torque Converter Clutch lockup.

you will probably need to replace the tempurature sensor it's self the car is not actually getting hot.

1996 VW cabrio runs strong until the temp gauge reaches about halfway to normal, then misses and run intermittently rough below 2000 rpm. As the temp nears normal the condition worsens and smooth operating...


i wonder if you've got an EGR valve stuck open that is making it vent exhaust gases into the motor at all times rather than only in wider throttle as it should?

Ngine over fueling at all rpm, rough idle, heavy fuel consumption


if the car is stock i would replace your oxygen sensor. you may also need to clean out the MAF sensor.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

Ive got a focus st170 and about 4000 revs it seems to missfire


  If you mean in neural it misses this is normal. It has a rev limiter to save the engine. You are bouncing it off the chip at 4000 rpm.

Tach and speedometer work intermittenly and sometimes trans doesnt shift until 4500 rpm. vw cabrio 1999 automatic.


Good question! My Cabrio's odometer works only when the outside temps are really cold... that means about freezing temp. My VW repair shop guru guy says that the Cabriolet is notorious for this failing. Since the odometer is driven through a small gearbox via the speedo cable, I suspect the odometer "transmission" is mostly kaput. The tach is also mechanically driven so it also may have a semi-functional cable. The only way to really know is to pull the cable and check it for damage. As far as the trans goes have you tested it for codes?

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
