over revved

Earlier in July I posted that I over revved the engine because the gas pedal got stuck under the floor mat. After going over all the info re: unable to start I exhausted all I was able to. Just had it towed (1993 mustang gt) to my mechanic and he said the computer was fried. Just FYI.

How would over revving your motor fry your computer? If it was me...I would take it to a different mechanic for another opinion.

If you overrevved it and your car doesn't start the module on your distributor probably went make sure you get the stock Original one for automatic or 5sp

It's official, it was the computer. Mechanic installed a used one and it runs fine. I just can't believe that little 302 could handle that much rpm!
