    I almost blew it up. Instead of shifting from 3rd to 4th, I went from 3rd to 2nd and overreved the engine. Now I am just counting the hours until it blows up on me.

    No fault lights, no odd sounds, temp didn't increase, and car still drives normal.

    I think you should be more concerned about the fact that you now own a Saab :noes:

    When I was learning how to drive stick, I was pretty stupid. i hit 9-10k on my lude about oh...4 times doing a 3-2 insted of a 3-4.

    30,000 miles later the engine is still strong and kicking, my engine must love to be tortured.

    :werd: rev limiter will do nothing for a mis-shift as they simply cut fuel or ignition, it can't force it out of gear :rofl:


    I'm surprised the trans didn't let go :o

    No, just went into the wrong gear. I have owned over 50 cars, and all but three have been standards. Just straight out missed the gear.
