There is no way i can ask this question without looking like an idiot, so i'm just going to admit that while im usually not this irresponsible, i was being a moron when the reason for this question arose... My question here is how badly did i hurt my drivetrain.
I was out at the airport (abandoned and we have permission) with some friends the other day, basically being an idiot. We were racing, not against each other, but for times, and several of us were drinking. I know, and you don't need to tell me...im stupid.
I'm happy to still be here, feeling like a moron, but now my problem is this...
As inebriated as i was, i pushed my little ford focus to the redline and beyond on several occasions without shifting, once or twice so much that it skipped a little (transmission slip?). I know some stuff about cars, and i have replaced an engine, but i have no idea how much damage i might have done to mine in this case, or to the transmission. I can't stop worrying, wondering how much i have shortened the life of my car, so i thought I'd throw it out here. It's a 5 speed with the 2.0 L engine, a 2003, and has about 60k on it.
the car isn't making any unusual noises, but i know i could have easily damaged some valves and vital tranny parts. I'm still paying for it so hopefully the news isn't too bad, but anyone who wants to tell me what i might have damaged would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
