Asked by Soad1790 Dec 05, 2013 at 02:15 AM about the 2014 Scion tC Base

Question type: General

As I was at a park I hit my new scion
tc in neutral and revved the engine, I
didn't exactly look at the rpms at the
time. But I got so high that the car
made a weird noise. Hearing that I
quickly let go of the gas. The car only
has 2,700 miles and the last thing I
want to do is ruin it. I've been driving
it these past few days and it's been
normal. Could anything be wrong
with it? I only revved the engine that
one time. Could doing it once
possibly ruin anything? Help..

the noise was the belts squealing no doubt, most late models have a limiter when in neutral for the manufactures protection, ever hear of new engine break in , once in a while someone gets it!
