Too high engine rpm at freeway speeds

\015 I have a 1997 2WD Nissan King Cab Pickup with a 2.4L four tied to a manual 5-speed tranny. At 75 mph the rpm of the engine is nearly 3500. The engine sounds and feels excessively high. How can I effectively reduce the high rpm's at high speeds. I really do like the pickup otherwise.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

What will cause my Toyota Hilux to smoke with loud engine noise at high rpm? When accelerated to speeds of approimately 130km/hr, the engine races of, which feel like no control to the vehicle, smokes ( white/black) and alot of engine noise. When pedal is released and engine rpm reduces the vehicle then runs normal at that low/med rpm, if increased to that appox. 130km/hr problem persists. Regards, Riad

I have same problem with 1996 chevy vortec 5.7. Runs great at idle and super at gradual acceleration. At full throttle the engine revs to high RPM's but does not accelerate. There is no poping or bucking just high engine RPM. If i accelerate gradually it gains speed smoothly and runs fine.

I have a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird SE with 3.1 V6, automatic transmission and air conditioning. When the engine is started, the idle speed immediately revs to 2900 rpm. When I put it into gear, the rpm drops to normal. This extra high idle speed only occurs when it is in park or neutral. The check engine light has not come on but I've checked for codes and there are none. I've checked the EGR valve passages and the Idle Air Control Valve passages and there were no blockages. There was just a sm

The Engine will idle normally for a few seconds the rpm will then drop and almost immediatly pick up above the normal idle and then settle back to normal. This repeats every few seconds. Occasionally when comming to a halt the engine will cut out completely. it seems to be ok at speed on the freeway but on the surface streets at about 30 mph i can feel the speed is a little uneven with a similar increase and decrease in in the engine pull.

I havea 2002 toyota camry with around 104000 miles on it. It has been a really comfortable ride till now. Just recently the sound of the engine has become louder, before it used to be a gentle hum.. also at low speeds the car hesitates a bit...it becomes better at high speeds. sometimes the rpm goes high, but the speed of the car remains low....recently took it for oil change and stuff...the condition of the oil is okay...no other problems

Engine misses badly at freeway speed and problem gets worse uphill. The tachometer gyrates wildly. Finally lost power and stopped. Waited a few minutes and restarted, but barely made it home. Engine starts at home, but when increase the engine speed at idle, the tachometer still gyrates at the higher rpm.

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max v6 3.0. It runs rough at high speed (not necessarily rpm) and the check engine light was on earlier this week, but is now off. Does the computer retain check engine codes? If so, how can I retrieve them? Any ideas why the engine would run and accelerate fine through about 45 mph and then start to run rough above that, seemingly regardless of rpm?


Yes, the computer does retain fault codes. They can be retrived either with a scan tool or by using an analog volt meter. (Good luck finding one of those if you don't already own one.)\012Volt meter method:\012Find the diagnostic conne ... 1993 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

At low speed rpms are up and down like its trying to shift gears, high speeds it doesn't seem to find overdrive stays at high rpm. Automatic trans fluid is good. "Service engine soon" light seems randomly off and on.


I'll bet its the TCC solenoid (Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid). Also, I suggest check the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), its fitted to the rear of the speedo unit.If you have the Service Engine Soon turn on, its possible that you have any ... 2003 Suzuki XL-7

1986 Honda Civic 4WD Wagon with carberated 1500 engine. Engine loses power after a short time at high power output like on the freeway going up hill or lower speeds on steep hills. After pulling over on the freeway and stopping for a minute or so it will accelerate like normal until getting up to 60 or 70 miles per hour then starts to slow down again. On normal around town driving with part throtle it runs good. I seemed like it may have been leaning out so I checked fuel pressure and flow, dirt

I have a Yamaha C115TX boat motor. When I accelerate the motor rpm will go high, the boat will never get enough speed to get on plane and the boat alarm will go off. I stop the boat turn the engine off and in about 5 minutes the alarm will clear. If I keep the boat rpm below 3500 the alarm will not go off but the boat speed is only 7 mph. I had the thermostats replaced by a reputable dealer about six months ago when I first started having the problem. I took it out for the first time since then

What should the engine RPM be at 65 mph cruise speed. Mine is running at 2400 RPM's and that sound s high, like it is not shifting all the way into over drive. Any ideas? My 04 Dodge P/U runs at about 1600 / 1700 RPM's.


Yes, that's about the right rpm for that speed on an SE  that uses a 200-hp 2.7-liter V6. and a little high but still normal for the ES which has a 234-hp 3.5 V6. Remember that you pickup has a much larger engine specifically designed to work on ... 2004 Dodge Intrepid

Just bought a used 2002 jetta tdi. have driven it about 1000 miles. It was driving fine, exited the freeway, went to accelerate and did not have acceleration. I thought the engine stopped, but it was idling high with no response from the accelerator. The glow plug light started flashing. The veh. already had an engine emmisions light on. I drove it home at this engine speed through all gears. I was afraid to turn it off and be stranded. When I got home I turned it off, and restarted it.

1988 Nissan Truck 4 cyl 2WD - Extremely high idle speed (4k rpm plus) in cold weather. After engine warms up idle drops to about 2500 rpm. The problem isn't nearly as bad in hot weather - will idle down to around 1500 rpm. An air-conditioning mechanic said it needs a new cold idle solenoid. Parts people I've talked to either don't know what that is or say it's no longer available. Anyone know how to fix this idle problem?

Hello, My 1981 Toyota truck with 22R W/Carburetor intermittently stalls on idle speed; it is OK and runs on hwy speed but some time not all the time(especially when engine hot) when traffic slows or getting in to stop, it stalls and hesitates to start. I have to pump few times then it starts but I have to keep pressure on the pedal to keep rpm high and going.Then problem goes away as quick as it comes. It is very annoying. I have already replaced, distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs. And


The fault seems evident to be within the carburetor. I think you might have to start from the fuel tank to check if there are impurities present in the tank, if you see the fuel filter dirty or clogged with fine dirt.\ ... Toyota Pickup

Acceleration When I try to accelerate, it takes a really long time, especially at higher speeds. The engine revs and I see the RPM monitor go up but it takes a long time to go faster. This happens the most on the freeway, I can hardly stay in fifth gear (its a 5 speed) because if I'm going up any kind of grade I can't accelerate at all. Also, when I'm at a stop and accelerate out of first, I hear a slight squeaking noise.
