Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Mercury Cougar V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50300 miles
Okay, I know that I have been posting quite a bit here, but I feel that I need to just get some answers so that I can rest with ease that my girl is doing okay. So my question is: Is is bad to hit 4000 RPM's when the car is close to normal/normal temp? The reason I ask is because I was at a stop light and was busy tinkering with something in my car, mind you the light was on a highway and it takes forever. Well I wasn't paying attention to the light and it was green for a bit. The cars in front of me were pretty far away and a car behind me honked. I then hit the gas to get back up to 40 and keep traffic up to par. When I did this I hit 4000RPM's and was wondering if this can cause a head gasket crack. The reason I wonder is because the noise kinda sounded like a down shift of something, but the car kept going and shifted correctly. I am not sure how to describe the noise, it just wasn't something that I have heard before. The car now runs fine without overheating/loss of coolant/coolant in oil.
So am is she gonna be okay?
have the same problem?
