DOES RED LINING CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE?
Hello, I own a 1995 Toyota Celica 1.8 ST. The mileage is at 76,000. The red line begins at 6,400 rpm and ends at 8,000 rpm. In the morning I was driving to work and i forgot to change the gear to second. The engine was not fully warm. The rev meter reached to 7,500 rpm until i noticed and changed the gear instantly. I would like to know if this may have caused any damage to the engine? If so, what sort of damage? Your help is much appreciated.
Anything internally-you're dogging it-maybe someday it will throw a rod then bingo new engine is needed.
Thanks for the fast response. What is the likeliness I have caused any damage to the engine? If any damage is caused, how will I find out?
How do you mean by the phrase 'dogging it'?
When it starts making wierd noises. Normally it will come from the lower end of the engine-a lot of pounding is being done down there. Bearings/Caps
So you mean I have damaged the engine quite bad?
Is it guaranteed damage? or if you stray into the red-line, there is a likeliness of damage?
Dogging it, is where you're straining it,making it do something when it not suppose to.
If damage is caused,k what sort of noise am I expected to hear?
Piston slapping in the cylinder, Thudding and thumping kind of noise.
From what I explained I did, is it very likely I have damaged the engine?
