I was driving and got stuck in a snow storm this evening coming home. To make a long story short, I was stuck on a road and couldn't get my 2002 V6 Mustang to get any traction to move forward thru the snow with the traction control on. Every time that I used to give gas, the car felt like it wasn't giving enough power to the rear wheels. It felt like it was LOSING POWER in the RPM's. Keep in mind that the traction control was on when this was happening. So what I did was I turned off the traction control. I then accelerated heavily (I put a lot of foot pressure on the gas pedal) to see if I could get more power to the rear wheels with the traction control OFF. When I did this, I realized that the RPM needle shot up right away to the 5,500-6,000 REDLINE area. The RPM's stayed in the REDLINE area for 2 to 3 seconds while my foot was on the gas pedal but no more than that. I finally regained enough traction to get the car to go forward. Now this is my question here. Do you think that I could of damaged anything in the engine, transmission or rear end from revving the engine to 5,500-6,000 REDLINE RPM's for only 3 to 5 seconds?? I have never before turned off the traction control on my Mustang when driving in the snow, but I did this only today because I had NO POWER from the engine to the rear wheels to get traction to move forward in the snow. Do you think that I damaged and ruined anything when my RPM's shot up to the 5,500-6,000 RPM REDLINE for a few seconds while I was trying to regain traction to go forward in the snow? I know one thing here. I really heard the engine get really loud when I put lots of pressure on the gas pedal with my foot with the traction control turned OFF. I never thought that the RPM's could jump up so quickly to 6,000 REDLINE mark. I am always used to driving with the traction control on and the RPM's never go up to more than 3,500 with the traction control on. Please tell me if I damaged anything in my transmission and engine or rear end by what happened. I got home okay and the car seems to drive okay. And I don't hear any noises or grinding coming from the engine, transmission or rear end, but I am still paranoid that I may have damaged something from what happened. I hope that the people in here can tell me if I damaged anything here. Thank You.
