When I pull 60mph, the RPMs race up to 3,000. Is this normal. When I had my '92 (straight 4 engine), I would hit about 3,000 rpm when I went 70 mph. DOes this sound right?

THANX,

ADJ

Perfectly normal for a 5-speed (MTX) V6.

I noticed that difference between my '91 and '93, both 5-speeds. I figure that since the V6 has shorter stroke it must rev faster since the gearing is actually the same between each.
