My 2003 montey hits the rev limite at 4000


if you are revving the engine in park or neutral it will hit the rev limiter as this is designed into the computer so the engine won`t get damaged due to over revving.

I accidentally hit the rev limiter today and now when I get into second gear and beyond my 2003 GTI 1.8T is making a loud hissing noise like it's the blow off Valve. I have now warning lights on and the...


hi sounds like your high revving has accidenetaly pushed off one of the turbo boost pipes or possibly even split a hose causing it to leak boost pressure get a freind to lightly rev the engine
so you can hear where its coming from if youve split the hose you should find it quite quickly with the bonnet up, or if need be get car up on axle stands and listen for it underneath, for a temporary fix and i mean temporarary wrap the split with gaffer tape or duct tape will restore your boost but not if you give it max revs good luck

You are hitting the rev limiter top range, which cuts off your ignition.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and the problem drives me crazy, but it is the way the car is designed- as soon as you hit the rev limit, it shuts down ignition and your jeep will "buck" - a real pain when you are trying to accelerate into traffic!

You have the 4.0L straight six engine, yes?

If so, please take my advice and learn to live with the minor annoyance of the rev limiter- that engine is IMHO the best Chrysler ever made (nearly "bulletproof"!) and it was so reliable you cannot even get it in a jeep now! For decades, that engine was used in welders, tractors, generators...and yes, jeeps... and it is a favorite among mechanics for its durability!

B******s! It could be that when they broke they tried to get your car going and they triggered the immobiliser and this may need to be reset. On the other hand with many automatics you can only remove the ignition key once the transmission is in 'park' and the steering lock has engaged. I wonder if they may damaged the parking interlock mechanism between the ignition point and the gear selector by messing with the locked steering wheel. Check that the steering lock unlocks OK and that the car is unable to start in any other gear position, try 'neutral'
