Default Rev Limiter

I still don't have the 95 SSEi on the road but I would like to ask a question. Do these cars have rev limiters because when I rev it in neutral it won't rev higher than about 4,500 rpm. When it reaches that point it goes down to about 3,000 then back up to 4,500. Up and down. I can't really check it in gear because I don't have plates on it. And at the rate I'm going now it probably won't for awhile.

There is a rev-limiter in park and neutral, supposed to be at or about 4000 rpm. But, please don't make a habit of doing that. Free-reving can be bad on internal parts.

Thanks for the info and advice, and I will be carefull next time. Hard to break the habit. Therefore if I understand correctly, there is no rev limiter in drive?

There is a limiter in drive. When my tranny was slipping, I'd hit it before it would shift to 2, not much higher than redline.

Park and neutral the limiter is supposed to be at about 4-4500 rpm

In drive, if I remember correctly any speed over 15mph the limiter is removed.
