Default Honda CRV-2004

I made the mistake of trying to make a green light by revving up my
CRV-2004 engine to about 6-7K rpm mark in 1st gear from stop (I have a
manual 5 speed). 6-7k is slightly above the red line. I didn't have the
time to change gears. The light was changing. I revved it up to that
level at a steady pace - I didn't gun it.

Is it possible that my cylinder walls are damaged and robbing me of
compression? Hairline fractures in my crankshaft? Any damage possible here?

Thanks

I find it difficult to believe that you didn't have time to shift gears.

The only damage is to your pride. Don't worry about it, but don't do it
again.

================================

You didn't rev it HIGH ENOUGH, if you didnt' feel it start sputtering
when the computer automatically cuts the spark.

No worry. Hondas like to be revved. :-)

Thanks Curly, that was an interesting piece of info. I didn't even
realize RPM overages were regulated by the computer. So its not possible
to redline a CR-V 2004? Please tell me more about Honda engines and
revving..

Thanks

---------------------------------

Some of the newest Hondas won't even let you hit 4,000 RPM if you're in
neutral or park. Pilot, I think. The computer just kills the INJECTORS
to bring the revs back down. I think I was wrong when I said spark
previously. Lots of people around here know more about this interesting
'feature'.

I know my '97 and '00 CR-V's both kill the injectors when coasting. You
can see the tach almost hit 300 RPM before it fires back up. Manual
tranny models may be a bit different.

Sure it's possible to overrev....go to redline in second and downshift to
first. The computer cannot stop the engine from being 'mechanically'
overreved.

----------------------------------------

Huntley can do that, (since he has a manual tranny) but the automatic
version of the CR-V won't let the tranny shift down when it's close to
redline. The manual says you can flip the lever but the tranny won't
downshift until you slow down to an appropriate speed. Fairly
idiot-proof.
