I have a 1985 1800 gl with an auto I think 3 speed any how It shifts into 3 rd at 45 and revs at 3500 rpm when I'm doing 65 mph.
Is this normal for these cars to rev so high??
At 70mph it revs at about 3750.
Any help thanks!!

1985 sub gl 1800 99,856 and $3,000 dollars later!!!

Also can anyone advise on the oil pump seal fix for all the valve noise???,Thanks:banana:

Yep, unfortunately thats just the nature of the beast.

Remember, these cars were designed for a 55-mph national speed limit.

Dittios... my 92 Loyale, 4WD has the same tranny.

The bad news is it revs like hell (about 4200 RPMS @ 65MPH) and only gets about 16MPG.

The good news is it can survive lots of neglect and aduse, especially the attempts of "the ex" trying to break it.

But, it still runs great!
:D
