Mini one auto 2002 revs won't go above 4000 rpm

Actually a 2002 model: the vehicle had been unused for about 6 weeks and battery was flat. Having started it the engine will not rev above 4000 rpm. Would any of you mini experts kindly advise me? Thanks! GA

94 nissan pathfinder voltage to battery issue


run the fault codes and check for injector problems
batteries have no set life ( that is what the warranty is for--- new batteries regularly fail at the end of the assembly line ) so if could be failing
have a load test on the battery
Have an accredited auto electrician check the output of the alternator to check it and the voltage regulator
low battery voltage will upset the ECM program

2002 cavalier 2.2 cuts out at 4000 rpm


The 2.2 or the 2.4 neither one has RPM limiter. On these vehicle when the timing chain goes,you end up taking out a valve. If your timing chain is out of timing it will do exactly what you describe, now the pecking noise if that is a valve it will do exactly also

2000 pontiac grand am 3.4 motor auto trans 4 door.Car starts and drives okay motor seems to stumble slightly between 3000-4000 rpms. with car stopped in park try to rev motor will only go between 3200-4000...


Hi Tom your vehicle is equipped with a Rev limiter it will not allow you to rev the engine above 4000 with the trans in park; as for the first problem you may have one of two things, one of the spark plugs or spark plug wires is bad or you have a flat spot on the throttle positioning sensor in which case have be replaced. Good luck?

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the idle speed motor or the idle speed sensor is no good. Your local shop can check this out for you.

Flickering charge light on dash when RPM's are above 2000. At about 4000 RPM's enginge stumbles.


Sounds like a diode might be going bad in the alternator. If you rev the engine in park or neutral the computer has a rev limiter that kicks in at 4000 rpms. That is normal, it is trying to keep the engine from blowing up. I'd have the alternator checked, it might check ok but be leaking ac voltage.

In neutral car is not going more then 4000 rpm


The 300M is equiped with a rev-limiter. The technology is designed to protect the engine. It keeps you from blowing it up when it has no load on it...If it is driving and shifting ok, and you have no check engine light on...there is nothing wrong.
Why would want to rev the engine past 4000 rpm in neutral anyway? Max torque comes in around 3950 RPM...
If you keep reving it up in neutral you might throw the computer in to LIMP mode, then you wont go no where.
Hope this answers your question...
