Have you or anyone else done any work to the car lately? Your car is in "limp" or "safe" mode - the car's computer thinks something is wrong with the car, and is only allowing it to get to 3500rpm to prevent any further damage to the engine. Check around for any loose wiring, particularly around the ECU.

My honda civic will only rev to 3.5 rpms


Check your timing. If VTECH isn't right or you didn't fully plug in your sensor, this can happen

Make sure you are full of coolant. Surgin on hondas is usually that issue.Also VTECH works on OIL PRESSURE. make sure you have correct oil in car.

My 1995 Acura Integra starts running roughly at 3500 rpms. Kept below 3500 rpms, it runs fine with no problems. It just started doing this. Never before. It seems there is somekind of govenor that kicks in...


If the fuel filter hasn't been changed in the last 2 years, that is a good place to start. Also,have you given it a full tune-up recently? those are the easy suggestions. Typically the major stuff shows up with a "check engine light" indication. My '97 Civic acted similarly to this, and it ended up being the fuel filter(at 167,00 miles). Cap/rotor/plugs or other ignition system faults will also limit high rev performance. When in doubt, Autozone will check your computer system for no charge if you're concerned about sending good money after bad.

1990 1.5l wont rev past 3500rpm's


Honestly I wish I could offer you more info, if it revs now that eliminates the convertor, only I can figure is when you got it to rev you were "blowing the soot out" LOL I hope I have helped you some if so please rate me accordingly.

1999 Honda civic Ex 5 speed


It is possible that your clutch is slipping, causing the engine to rev high. Does it also seem to be lacking power, ie if you put your foot ******* the accelerator does it just rev up and not go any faster? If so, the clutch will need to be replaced. Take it to a garage and get them to road test and report to you if you are unsure.
Hope this helps, Mark

Civic SI 5-speed transmission/clutch


it depends on how high your reving the engine. if your at the stock a3 rev limit (6900-7000 rpms), between 400 and 450whp. the shaft the gears are on starts to flex and gears separate, causing minimal engagement, which rounds off the edges of the gears.
with a almost stock a3 tranny (stock + quaife LSD), 415whp and 9000rpm rev-limit, it took 1 good race at the drags to damage the 1st and 2nd gear syncros. after a few more races the gears were moderately damaged too.

as far as a good clutch, if you can afford it, i would recommend the FX600 from ClutchMasters.
