engine revs

Asked by Apr 19, 2010 at 07:00 PM about the 1991 BMW 3 Series 318is

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

why does the engine revs up beyond 4000 rpm even in the 5th gear (120Km/h)

3 Answers

395

400 rpm sound right for 120 k an hour. remember it`s a 4 cylinder 1.8 litre.

395

not 400 but 4000

115

Is it a manual or automatic transmission?
