When to increase engine RPM after engine break in?

What’s more, the recommendations claim that even after that, between 2,000 and 5,000 km (1,200 to 3,100 miles) the engine’s RPM can be increased but you should make sure you don’t travel at speeds over 220 kph (137 mph) for too long. No exact figures are offered so you’re to decide for yourself what ‘too long’ stands for.

What’s the Max RPM a car can turn at?

Why does my Mercs motor bog down at high RPM?

Turned out, the inner lining of the gas line–Mercs best–has a separate membrane. This membrane–very thin–separated inside the line. When I would cruise at 2/3 throttle or less, no problem. Give it the full throttle and she’d bog down because it was crushing the inner membrane. New hose for $40 and problem solved!

Is it possible to over rev an engine?

Even in Formula One, cars cannot surpass their max RPM without risking damage to their vehicles. Modern engines are outfitted with rev limiters in order to make it more difficult to over-rev your vehicle and damage the engine.
