    Ok, i have a 00' accord 2.3 VTEC 4dr sedan EX.
    In every gear if i get past 4k RPM she acts like she is red lining. tacts the needle back and forth and everything. first i was thinking my tranny was slipping... but for it to happen in EVERY gear and at the SAME spot? now im thinking maye a sensor is bad or the brain is messing up. Input?

    Hey,Sorry no one has bothered to assist you here :Aghast:

    When you say red lining does it feel like it robbing the car of power like you could if you had reach in excess of 7K RPM? Do you have any warning on the dash like the engine management light (MIL)?

    Lastly what has changed on your car then to make this problem more prominent?
