i was sitting at a light in my s40. i leaned over to pick up something that fell onto the floor when i stopped short. my gut must have slid the gear shift into the manual mode side. <p>anyway with the music and a/c on, i didn't hear the engine screaming when i started out of the light. i went (or barely) went about 10 feet before I realized what happened. the rps went over 7. <p>how much damage did i do?? should I be rushing it to a mech tomorrow or something?<p>

Re: i'm an idiot (disappointedbyvolvo5)

Nah buddy... You should be fine... Modern cars have ECU based rev limiters that cutout when the RPMS go too high... You could litterally just hold the throttle down and watch it bounce off the limiter probably not the smartest thing to do but ya know it is there to protect the engine from over reving. You have nothing to be worried about especially cause you caught it as fast as you did. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

From what I remember, there was always a delay of about 500rpm between the time I told the car to upshift and when it actually upshifted.<br>
