Toyota MR2 MK1 high engine revs

Asked by Apr 05, 2019 at 02:58 PM about the 1985 Toyota MR2

Question type: General

I have a 1986 toyota mr2 with the engine having about 120k miles. while
driving the car at speeds around 80kmph the revs are unusually high(about 4k-
5k) this forces it to return bad gas mileage.Is this normal or is something wrong
with my engine?

1 Answer


4A-GE engine...4-5K at 50mph that's high revs trans-axle needs be checked likely not going into top gear.
