    Money shifting a AT car?

    Just wondering is it possible for a AT car to go pass the 7k rpm maximum?

    I know hotrod182 had a transmission issue where he revved to about 8k with his 6at. There is video on his YouTube account. Did the car drop a gear on it own or just keep revving higher?

    judging from the log it looks like it dropped a gear.

    I have had it happen before, where it wont shift or actually downshifts, its not very fast and it hits 7200k and i let off, drops down to 5 and shifts itself. No lights, codes etc.

    wow hotrod's video is scaryyy. howeverr you said money shifting... did you somehow downshift and over rev? i would think AT car's wouldn't allow the driver to money shift.

    I would think it's really only possible if you mess with the final drive or somehow change trans programming.

    What happened there? Trans slipped and it revved out?

    Nope, it upshifted to 4th, then downshifted to 3rd on its own.

    if its only 1st and 2nd gear, its not a big deal as wheelspin and then gaining traction could do it. if it hapens when theres little no spin, like 2-3 and 3-4, thats when it could be an issue

    If you dont let off it would go 7500+k rpms. It has happened between 1-2 and 2-3 shifts, usually after i have done a pass or two

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I vaguely remember reading about the tranny going into 3rd when there is some sort of failure and stays there as a sort of "safety" gear
