Let Rpms Get Too High!

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 IS350. I was passing in 2nd gear and missed an upshift to 3rd. I thought I had shifted, but I guess I didn't. I may have hit the cruise control thinking it was the upshift paddle since I don't use the paddles that much. Anyway, the rpms went all the way to 8. The engine started vibrating or missing. I immediately backed off and realized that I was still in 2nd. The vibrating/shaking only lasted about 2 seconds. I have two questions: 1.) what was happening when the engine felt like it was missing or vibrating? 2.) Although it seems to run fine now, did I do any permanent damage to the engine?
