What he means is that, there is no useable power after 7000 rpm. So he upshifts at 6900.

It's not such a big problem. But what is very irritating is that even while driving the rpm keeps shooting every time you press clutch to change gears. It is very irritating in city driving because after changing gear when you release clutch the car just jerks forward as though it would hit the rear bumper of the car ahead. Any idea where the problem lies.
RPM shooting when you change gears may be because you are not getting off the accelerator soon enough. Try getting off the accel before you press the clutch and then see whether RPM surges.

I've experienced the same thing since my O2 sensor conked up too. I wasn't able to successfully find an after market place around in Bangalore to get me a replacement sensor and I haven't really noticed a real difference in the FE too.

@ rdkarthik : How?

Possibility of something else not being in spec, like shantanu said maybe an 02 sensor thats too old or off on its standard operating outputs .. This is interesting stuff, shantanu next time you get your car to bangalore i want to see it ... GTO ,shantanu and the third example, whats the manufacturing date of your cars?

Mine is a 2003 with the 2nd generation ECU (No jerking etc.) while Shan2nu has a 2000 / 2001 Vtec.

Hmmm... looks like I'm gonna have to test mine too today to see whether it cuts-off or not. The O2 sensor in my car is also giving intermittent trouble.

It could be Hot rev limit which is set about 400-500 rpm above cold rev limit. Cold rev limit is active till engine is fully warmed up & is active till certain conditions are not met.

My car is a 2001 year model. Another thing is that for 2 days the engine check light had completely vanished. Thats when i did the 7400 rpm run. The light has been back for some time now. Need to see where the limit is as of now. Performance wise, there is no drop in power.

Sorry to hijack this thread GTO. I have a similar problem (almost).

On Sunday my car jerked / stalled while i was driving. To help in better understanding, it felt like riding a bike where fuel was down to reserve capacity. This happened earlier once too and the loss of power / jerking was more evident. After revving the car the problem disappeared but i noticed the rpm needle was wavering / twitching at 3000 RPM mark (i guess the term is hunting).

Is my throttle body blocked due to dust? I had got it cleaned earlier (few months back) at Electra where an aerosol container was used to spray something into the TB while revving the car. The problem vanished and has now popped up again. Any comments? Is there any DIY solution for this problem?

Mostly it is clogged TB or injectors. Get it cleaned again & make sure you fill up at the right place.

Quite possibly a fuel pump issue too....

Just saw that big discussion on MAFs and MAPs, and the Cedia has both, unless I'm very much mistaken.
