Did i push my car to the limit?
Hello everyone, I got a 98 Saturn sc2 with 195k miles and an automatic transmission. I had a hell of a day yesterday and I had to speed up for a while. I pushed my car up to 100 mph and revved as high as 6000 rpm. I know in some places 80 is the speed limit in freeways but I never pushed my car that much and my transition already had some lag changing to reverse. I just want to know the potential damage this could have done to my car and what are some things I can do to minimize the damage.
have a great day, keep up the good work Scotty!
reverse is usually the first gear to go out on a worn out transmission.
If there is no change in the way it is running then I wouldn't worry about it. But I sure wouldn't tempt fate by doing that again.
