how many gears does a meganne 1.6 vvt dynamique have

Hi all , I am obviously new to this so appologies in advance for any mistakes made.
I have just brought an 02 meganne but it seems to rev high at 60mph but as the gears stick has worn i have no idea how many gears they have and may be missing a gear? could any one shed light on this?

Re: how many gears does a meganne 1.6 vvt dynamique have

1.6 vvt engines for meganes seem to come in 2 flavours. the 100bhp version has 5 speeds,the 110 bhp version has 6 speeds.
More generally 6 speed gearshifts are usually like a 5 speed except 6th is obtained by pulling the gearshift straight back from 5th to get 6th..
Depends where reverse gear is on yours.
If its where 6th would be its a 5 speed box, if you have to select reverse by moving the gearshift outside the 5th to 6th "throw line" its more likely to be a 6 speed box.
Either way its kind of unlikely that 6th would be totally blocked off if it was 6 speed.It might not engage or balk at engaging ..

Google your cars engine bhp , quoted max speed,final drive ratio of km/mph per 1000 rpm etc. there are "tables" and spec brochures out there if you google around.

Can you select all the gears at rest? What RPM is your tacho giving at 60mph?
