That could happen from something as simple as an overdue air filter, bad plugs, or, unless you know it to be fresh, a failing timing belt, which could destroy your engine which I think is an 'interference' type that can have valves and pistons occupying the same space at the same time if the cam gets out of time.

I have 1999 Volvo C70 2.3 Turbo and it won't rev past 4k rpm. It idles fine,but stumbles and hesitates when the pedal is pressed. The CEL is on and the codes are for a cylinder misfire and an oxygen sensor...


4000 rpm is pretty high..it may have a fuel cut off for extremely high operation to prevent blowing it up..why so high?? most run between 2200-3000rpm..not 4000...

2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

Car revs up to 3000 rpm when I start it. I have unplugged the idle control valve and it makes no difference


It is an electrical relay problem, that is part of the EFI system, I had an Audi of about the same age with the same problem many years ago. The relay was under the dash to the left of the steering wheel. Sorry, can't be more precise, but the dealer at that time had the relay in stock and one mechanic at the dealer gave me enough info to find the relay and replace it, and that solved the problem
