Wassup guys. So I have a 98 Honda Civic Hatchback DX. Drive is fine. 1st & 2nd gear rev up to 7 is fine. But 3rd-5th gear, high rev automatically stops at 4 or 5 rpm. Engines still runs. Need help.

My problem with my car can be ecu or transmission. What do you guys think

Automatic trans? If so, the convertor is locking up in those gears, so you won't be reving the engine that high, and you shouldn't anyway.


Manual trans. Really? So get a new trans?


Proabably need a new one for track racing.
