Hi Gillian .

When driving at 60 and then the engine revs rise, but the speed of 60 stays.

How high do the revs get to when this happens

Greg
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi the revs reach 50 or just over and i naturally slow down then cant get speed up again without it revving. Not 100% sure if i actually loose power or just naturally slow down.

Hi,
I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you,
Shantal
