German term or phrase: rund laufen
I have 2 sentences to translate for a vehicle owner's manual, and I just don't know what "rund laufen" would translate to. Here are the sentences:

"Die eingestellte Geschwindigkeit kann nur erreicht werden, wenn der eingelegte Gang dies zulasst, der Motor nicht überdreht wird und rund lauft. Schalten Sie daher rechtzeitig in einen höheren bzw. niedrigeren Gang."
