Default High RPM

Hello,

My car was suffering from a bad coil pack, in the morning it would misfire when it was humid. I change the spark plug, cable and coil pack. The misfire have gone away, but I notice that while driving at around 80 mph or greater am getting in 4k rpm. Is this normal or is my car running a little bit more stressed?

Car info: Jetta 2004 2.0L

Sounds normal to me for a 2.0, as long as its a manual. That's what my New Beetle always ran at.

My 2001 2.0 manual was the same.

At 80 mph, and 1/2 tank of gas, all the needles pointed straight up......

4000 rpm, 80 mph, 190 coolant temp, 1/2 tank of fuel.
