Questions about revving my car?

I just got a 2011 Mustang V6 automatic and was wondering if revving it in PARK was safe. I know I shouldn't go above the red line or do it for too long. Is it okay, though, on an automatic transmission? And should I do short bursts to rev the engine or just hold the gas down (or floor it) until it get's to about 4,000 RPM?

I'm also assuming the parking brake shouldn't be on while doing this and would revving it in PARK be better/safer than in NEUTRAL?

Thanks in advance!

"Revving" the engine, as you call it, will possibly damage the components inside, especially if there is no load on the engine..............+ there is no reason to "rev" an engine - you did not purchase a race vehicle

Revving it in park is safe but dont hold it there for long as the motor is not under load and you can easily cause engine damage if it over revs like that...

Questions about revving my car?

Today's Engines are built very very tough. You can put your foot all the way down on the pedal and rev it all day long, red line??? No problem. Then when the engine begins to knock because the main bearings have seized and the warranty is voided because you don't know how to take car of a car, then you can help the economy when you pay the thousands of dollars to a mechanic to repair your stupidity. In other words, don't do it!!! A brand new engine has no reason to be revved up to its limitation for no reason at all. Why would you want to do that for anyway? Who are you trying to impress? You will look more stupid when the engine blows in front of friends and family. You sound like your 17 years young and need to grow up. Sorry for being so harsh, but what you are doing to an engine , or should i say a block of moving metal parts just makes no sense at all. I could have never afforded to buy such a car at your age and i ...never mind....
good luck.....

weather your in park or neutral it,s not good on the engine. you might throw a rod doing that, especially when the engine is cold.
