I don't know if it's supposed to be like that, but the car ('96 GS) shifts at high RPM's. It shifts at about 4,000RPM'S. Is this a problem or are all eclipses like that?

My 95 talon ESi does the same when I push the gas pedal a little too hard. Ease up on the gas and it will shift normally.

The TPS and TCU knows how slow you guys cars are so it keeps you in higher rpm so that you guys can keep up with traffic.



BTW, rs and bad gas milage? Please............


I get 16 city 19 highway

They are not talking about driving wot driving. All of our cars will rev out that high when at wot, so whats your point? Your friend must drive a moped if he about shat his pants when he saw your car do that... :rolleyes: :toobad:

As for it shifting at 4k rpms on you other guys, that is just how high it has to shift to accelerate the amount you are wanting it to. like the guy above me said, although in a rude,uncalled for manner, the tcu tells the tranny when to shift based on the throttle position sensor. If you were trying to accelerate and it shifted earlier at that throttle position you car would bog down too much.

hehe, I wasn't trying to be rude, just logical. The shift tables are developed by measuring the gear ratio's, power available through out rpm range, throttle position, driver comfort, and last but not least EPA. The car tries it's best to get good milage and provide efficiently it's available power, some times you might be pressing the peddle harder in a higher gear trying to accelerate and the tcu decides that by downshifting you could have more power and maybe even get better milage by not having to press the pedal as hard.


It's a very well thought out system that is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing, my friends rs did the exact same and besides being loud from the revs the car actually drove pretty smoothly
