Does high rpm hurt transmission?
Excessive High RPM While extremely low rpm and high loads will damage your transmission right away, sustained high rpm may damage it over the long run.

Is it bad to go over 3000 rpm?
Running an engine some 3000 RPM below its redline should be absolutely find for extended periods of time. It might “sound” a bit revvy if you run the engine at that RPM when stationary – and indeed it might get hot quite quickly as it will not have the cooling airflow that occurs when driving.
How high is too high rpm?
I would say anything up to 9000 rpm should be fine. That’s why they call it redline. If 7750 was its safe limit then that would be the redline. Now 10000rpm might be considered as unsafe.
What happens if your RPMs are too high?
Maintaining higher RPM not only increases the temperature of the engine but also degrades the quality of the engine oil and which results in frequent oil changes. Also, the life of the engine deteriorates when it is continuously abused by the driver by red lining it in the shorter gears.

Is 5000 rpm too much?
5000 is where the fun starts. It’s not staying there for extended periods. You’ll be fine. The reason it’s so sluggish is that the transmission is programmed to save fuel so it’s always in a higher gear.
