@Ganges, If i remember correctly, just 2 times i went around 100 and that i just happened to glance over the RPM meter, it showed 3.5K+ definitely. Well you see my 100 speed was shorlived on that Road due to traffic. So while downshifting (2) and then revving her up and upshifting (hope i am using words correct) i saw the RPM needle touching 4-4.5K. @Driver, It was definitely for a sec or 2 at that RPM. Then it dropped down and i had to slowed down. But over all, the driver was in the range of 1.5-2.5K only. Yes the temp needle was in the middle as usual. - - - Merged Post - - - Care to put up more explanation please? Def. sound fishy in my yest driving style. Hope i am not frying my engine soon. Is it always suggested to go back to 2nd gear to push or just be in 3rd and slowly push by footing hard, coz yet i did that 2 times.
