    Default RPM Limiter on a 1996 Chevy Suburban 1500 with a 5.7l vortec 4x4

    Is there an RPM limiter on these suburbans? I am starting to have tranny problems (I think) and I want to make sure if the torque converter or whatever stops working properly that my newly rebuilt engine doesnt throw a rod because the rpms jump up too high.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    if anything happens in your tranny, you will feel it right before and it will slip..but that wont make your RPM's jump to 6K or so ...unless you feel like keeping your foot all the way down.
    But i do think they have one...

    anyhow, be more concerned about your tranny instead your RPM...lol

    Thanks. I'm more concerned about my wife who drives this thing and has a VERY heavy foot. If it hesitates, she'll stomp on the gas or Cruise control will try to catch up to a sudden drop in speed.
