Should I be able to redline my automatic?
Because lately I've been able to redline it very easy, which I dont think is a good thing.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I've never driven an automatic I could redline without shifting it manually, but I've never driven a Tibby... Based on what I know about cars in general, though, most autos shift before redline, even with the pedal to the floor.
Perhaps there's someone with better knowledge who could add to this...

well..ya never know....in an auto, ya can't really control where you will redline unless you use 1,2,L and D...but you'll only be able to lock gears in 1 and 2(in most cases)...sounds like you need a 5spd

I have an auto and yes it will red line. if you gust start with the gas all the way down and hold it the car will go all the way to the read line and sometimes bounce off it a few times before it shift. The other way I sometimes bounce off the read line is when I autocross. I usually lock the car in second and sometimes I hit the limiter like that but that's just part of the fun<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>. And besides that it rely is faster to hold the car at the read line and not shift if the next turn is close.

If it's hitting the revlimiter when your not at full throttle then you may have a problem.

Manuals are fun but when you sit in rush hour traffic you appreciate the auto.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

ehhh... that doesnt sound too good, kinda sounds like your slipping gears to me

when it shifts, does it rev up before it actually switches gears??? or it feels like it revs up before it would clutch in?

Redlining is bad for a car. Shift before redline or you risk blowing the motor.

<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>

The 1996 and newer hyundai's have a build in Rev limiter. They will NOT let you "over rev" the motor or blow it.

Do NOT spray Nitrous to Redline, cut it off at least by 6400, preferably 6200 in case your Tach needle is off. You can blow the motor with using nitrous that way.

But just N/A...you won't blow your motor taking it to redline.
