The RPM of my engine remains at 4000 while my speed is 120 km/hr


I guess that you have a manual transmission. If that is the case you have a clutch on the way out. Slow slippage that gets worse as the plate gets hotter. If an automatic it is possible that the overdrive is not holding due to low pressure in the box. Have a pressure test done on the box--- have the fault codes read. From experience 120 kph is around 3200rpm for most cars and the 800 rpm difference indicates that the o/dive is not working as it should.

Changing engine oil every 5000 KM or every 2500?


The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.

I have a jetta 2000 ... 2.0 am facing problems with my speedometer which is suddenly indicating 240 km then going back to normal speed, once i press hard on the gas when ever the indicator reach max speed...


Change the Engine speed sensor. This can sometime cause your dash to do all sorts of weird things when they fail, such as setting the low fuel warning off as well. strange but true ! good luck

Car has no power and has a rattling noise


RPM and speed do not match what I'd expect to see at 120. but that could be gear ratio being different than I'd expect. Most don't like to run at 4k. Most problems at that rpm is either plugs (experiment with different gap settings or change heat range one step colder or hotter) or can be coil related (work fine except when recovery time is shortened due to rpm). However, the weird noise may be due to a partially plugged catalytic converter. So, check that as well. If you have a knock sensor, test that too.
