What is the maximum rpm?
Gasoline automobile engines typically will have a redline at around 5500 to 7000 rpm. The Gordon Murray Automotive T. 50 has the highest redline of a piston-engine road car rated at 12,100 rpm. The Renesis in the Mazda RX-8 has the highest redline of a production rotary-engine road car rated at 9000 rpm.
What RPM is normal?
The idle speed should feel consistent without skipping or slipping. In most of today’s cars, an idle speed of 600 to 1000 RPMs is average. If your car is idling rough, though, it won’t feel smooth. The RPMs will jump up and down, for example, or they’ll fall below 600 RPM (or whatever is typical for your vehicle).
Is going to 5000 rpm bad?
5000 is where the fun starts. It’s not staying there for extended periods. You’ll be fine. The reason it’s so sluggish is that the transmission is programmed to save fuel so it’s always in a higher gear.
Is 3000 rpm too much?
Running an engine some 3000 RPM below its redline should be absolutely find for extended periods of time. It might “sound” a bit revvy if you run the engine at that RPM when stationary – and indeed it might get hot quite quickly as it will not have the cooling airflow that occurs when driving.

Is cruising at 3k RPM bad?
If you are in a low gear then yes it’s bad for your gearbox. If you are in top gear driving on a freeway or motorway it’s perfectly ok for a diesel where 3000 would be high but petrol cars tend to run a little higher so that might be better one gear less.
What speed is 60 RPM?
Thus a disc rotating at 60 rpm is said to be rotating at either 2π rad/s or 1 Hz, where the former measures the angular velocity and the latter reflects the number of revolutions per second. If the non-SI unit rpm is considered a unit of frequency, then 1 rpm = 160 Hz.
