Hey guys. I hope you all had a great xmas.
My sister is visiting me in Ontario and she drove here from Misssissppii during htat big storm. Her car has sta for a few days( 2) and now in Park the rev limiter seems to act at 35-3800.. its the 3.5 and its an LHS.. I think a 99.
Any ideas???
Please anything would be a help.

That's in gear. When it's in park it won't go over 3K RPM.

Not to be a dick... but ANYONE who guns it in park... deserves to have their engine die.

Revving an engine in park has been an american pastime. People have done it for 50+ years... to try and intimidate people next to them.

The amount of damage a quick little rev will do is no more than running it to red line under load.

Notice I said "quick"

Sitting and revving it to 8K for great stretches isn't good, as the engine may overheat.

One would think they would do it in "drive" (if it's installed in the car)

In some cases they do, and some they don't. Racing engines are a good example of ones that are tested that way, especially since they will see that constant 500 miles of high RPM. But there is more to the testing than just revving it up, like with the new HEMI, they constantly heated it up and cooled it down (icy icy water) to see what would happen.

A quick rev is really nothing, I should have clarified before, like it was mentioned holding the peddal to the floor for a long period of time will do most harm. But the limiter is there for a reason, I'm guessing it's to prevent neutral dropping (seeing that a big weak spot for the LH cars is the transmission)

cough uh back then they made motors that last instead of these new engines
the limiter is there so u dont break off the motor mounts so the guy is right its a safety issue and if u rev in park thats not to smart if u keep bounceing the motor u will break something
and it is different from park and drive park the power has no where to go in drive ur useing all that power going to the wheels and its more power but its going some where

Motors nowadays last MUCH longer than they did "back when"

Revving, NOT BOUNCING OFFA THE REV LIMITER, won't hurt you if done resonably. watch your temperature. thats IT

Running the 1/4 mile is WAY WORSE for your engine than sitting there and dry revving to 6K for 16.5 seconds.

This is actually a transmission safety feature. You will only find it on cars with automatic transmissions. Keeps the fluid from overheating and such. Torque convertor is turning but the gears and pumps are not.

Did they start putting the 3500 limit in 98 when they started making 2nd gens? I know that my 1st gen 97 hits the limiter at red line when out of gear.
