Re: c280 stock redline....RAUL

do u have any idea what might cause it to <br> cut at 5500rpm? <br> also yours goes up to 6000rpm does it shift<br> smoothly right at that point? or do u have to ease on the pedal a little?

You have a in-line 6 C280 w/ a 4 spd auto, not a 5spd auto V-6.<br>
<br>
So the redline, and transmission are different.<br>
However, your car should still be shifting at 6400 with out much abruptness.
