At what rpm should the car operate in fourth gear?


Asked by ZXCV Mar 30, 2008 at 03:28 PM about the 1992 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i just got this car and it just doesnt sound right over 55mph As it approaches 60mph the rpm approaches 3000.

That does not sound right. It could be your tach or your transmission is in need of a overhaul. I would get looked at.


Wife's 1990 Camry did this, it was a problem with the trans internally. You might try a fluid and filter change but you may be in for more $$$ and work.
