When you try to rev it up does it sort of rev up and down like a rythm?
If so that is a safety thing to keep people from blowing up there engines. My truck does that too. It sounds like it's not getting gas at hi rpm's. Only floor it when your driving don't try to show off the rev you'll blow it

Hyundai sante fe 2007 2.2crdi wont rev past 3000 rpm


If your standing still in park it wont rev past 3000 rpm as its got a limiter on it And only revs past 3000 rpm in drive on the move.

If you're talking 4000 rpm, in neutral you'll cause engine damage! 2000 RPM is the max safe limit. Power loss is usually due to a restricted fuel filter. Does it smoke when running? (air filter), Try some Isopropyl alcohol deicer or fuel injector cleaner to ensure there's no water in the system. you haven't given enough info to diagnose the problem, i.e. drivability, history, and symtoms.

My1991 mazda 626 will not rev up over 3000 rpm


DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING? Or do you mean sitting and reving the engine? If you are just reving the engine in park then the rev limiter is kicking in.

2001 hyundai santa fe sputters and won't go past 5 miles an hour. At 3000 rpms in park it shuts down. what can I do to solve this problem, thanx


It sounds like the exhaust system is clogged. Try looking under your vehicle with a flashlight and look for bends/kinks in the exhaust pipes. I had a similar problem with my car, when the catalytic converter broke apart, and clogged the exhaust. i could barely reach 20km/hr, and the engine would shut off at 2500 rpm. Replacing the catalytic converter fixed my problem.

Does a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport have a "governor?" Just wondering because when the vehicle is in neutral or park the RPM will not go above 3000 but it will go higher if in drive.


This is called a rev. limiter. Most vehicles are equipped with these to prohibit over-revving in neutral and to protect the engine from damage. Its not a governor.
