I drove my husbands honda civic, a manual and i am more use to an atomatic now. a couple of times when i chaged gears the revs went up to 4000 rpm momentarily. is that ok?

Asked by Dec 27, 2016 at 07:41 AM about the 2010 Honda Civic

Question type: General

my husband likes to keep it under 3000rpm. he says that by touching
4000rpm for a moment is damaging the engine. I was trying really hard not
to over rev,,,and it felt like I was just touching the accelerator, didnt seem at
all a problem to me. but I really would like to know if his reaction is a bit
over the top. I would have said i was driving it gently,,,first time I have
driven it, seems fine to me but is it. am i do any damage? im not sure of the
year though. maybe 2010 model

Motors are capable of high rpm with no damage to the engine. Just keep it under the red-line on the tack. Ex-stream rpm, the red line and above will eventually damage the engine.

You husband is a nut if he thinks 4,000 rpm will damage the engine.
