RPMS TOO HIGH! Could have been my post!!

Asked by Mar 21, 2010 at 05:02 PM about the 1991 Mercury Capri 2 Dr STD Convertible

Question type: General

Came here to seek answers to my concerns over a 91 Capri I just bought w/ 33.000 original miles. Car sems to run pretty hot even though these early Spring New England temps have barely hit 60 so far. RPMS at 70 MPH is about 3900. I'm thinking that's kind of high for a 5 speed. Are my concerns warrented?
  Thanks  in advance!!!!

I have also noticed the high rpms at highway speeds but consistant ly getting 36-38 mpg!

75

those are common revs for this car and the temp gauge is fine they always register hotter than they really are
