    i have 89 civic with a d16z with a turbo and for some reason my rpm is running high,..at idle it is at 2k and when i'm doing 70mph the rpm is near redline at 6k...but there seems not to be any engine stress,,like its redlining.. but i do feel a power difference...
    at highway speeds, it tends to want to jump back to 3k rpm where it should be but instead it goes back to like 6k.. it does this once in awhile and when it wants to it goes back to normal. I was told that when this happens,.something is making the engine retard its timing.. im not sure..but can someone PLEASE help me out..i can't stand it. could it be the distributor?

    is it an automatic?>?

    if you're at 70 mph and it's suddenly going from 6k to 3k you're in a world of hurt
