I thought about your post as I drove on the motorway today.

I was doing 70 at 2000 revs.

90 at 2500 revs [emoji6]

Hi Frank, 

When I had a x type 2.5 AWD, I used to get the same as you.

The diesel engine runs at much lower RPM.

Regards, 

Peter.

in the gear box you have solenoids which also operate with speed sensors, if these are not working correctly then this may be your problem? you need to get a garage to link up to your tcm on the auto box, and it may help narrow the issue...

I think it is petrol, Frank, but the 3.0 litre has loads of power and the revs at 70 mph are lower than smaller engines.

Peter
