REvs at 100 kph

Hey all.

My Fairmont runs at a lazy 1950 or so revs at 100 kph.

My wifes Failane runs at 2500.

(Both are 5 litre, mine a 91 EB and hers a 93 NC).

Would this be because of the diff ratios? and what should they be reving at for 100 kph in standard trim.

Pete

Something is wrong. Wayne's NC Fairlane V8 is also below 2000 rpm. Has someone stuck a 3.7 diff ratio in the NC? :s5

Assuming tacho, speedo are correct, the NC has a 3.91 ratio diff, or perhaps it has a trans problem and isn't going into O/D?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

We just had the trans replaced, and I thought that might it, but it hasn't changed (trans was stuffed).

hmmm .. might get the trans guy to have a look at it again.

Yes, speaking in IRC a better suggestion was given: transmission is failing to get into 4th gear. This is a problem that has been dealt with on these forums before. If need be I can do a search and dig up the appropriate thread.

That would be handy. I don;t think that this is the problem, but it could be.

Sounds like it isn't going into overdrive.
Easy way to check is to select between '3' and 'D' on the gear lever at a steady 100kph and see if the revs change at all.
If the revs don't change, you have a problem with the transmission.

Rick.
