High revs in 5th/6th gears
When I gear up into 5th from 4th, the revs go mad-this is when doing it smoothly, i.e. when travelling at 40-50 mph. If I gear up when doing over 50 mph the counter shoots for the red line and I have to go straight to 6th. When in 6th, the revs are over 4000 when doing over 70 mph, which doesn't seem normal.
Certainly sounds like I will have to get this seen to in a garage, but does anyone know what may have happened
FYI-during the week I 'jammed' the gearbox while trying to execute a hasty u-turn-not sure if this is the cause. Lower gears seem fine.
Cowboys Ted, they're a bunch of cowboys!
