The rpms seem higher on this vehicle than I am use to seeing, cruising at 80mph the car is hitting 4000rmps. Is this normal for this vehicle?


there is not enough specif details available to be able to be close to exact But I will give an example that you can compare
in a manual transmission with a diff ratio of 3.909 and in 5th gear the rpms for 79 mph is 3200 rpms
the difference between gears is around 250 rpms so if you try to correlate the differences if it was in 4th gear the rpms would be around 3750 rpms so I suspect that the over drive section of the transmission is not engaging ( assuming that it is auto transmission)
so to answer your question , I am saying that it is too high in rpms for that speed and I suspect that the od is not being engaged as the rpms at 80mph I would be looking at around 3200-3500 rpms depending on the diff ratio

Have an fx45.Should the tach read 25-3000 ROMs when moving at 75mph? Auto tranny seems like it should be in higher gear.


there is not info to be able to give a definite answer
to work it out
you have top know the diff ratio, wheel tyre circumference to be able to work from rpms of the engine to road speed
However as a pointer, most cars will be around 3200 rpms at 60mph as this will be direct drive and od causes a drop in rpms
Being an automatic find yourself a good section of low traffic road and start from stop slowly increase the rpms and watch the rpms. keeping the accelerator steady you will see when the auto changes by a drop in rpms. slowly increase road sped until you see the next drop in rpms and so on. Over drive normally comes in around 55 mph or around 3000rpms
I would think that it is working because 3500rpms at 75mph is reasonable rpms to be expected. If it wasn't working I would expect the rpms to be around 3800 to 4000.at 75mph

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms
