Question about 2004 Infiniti I35

1 Answer

I35 rev limit at 2500

This problem happened once before and I was able to fix it by resetting the ECU with an over-night battery disconnect. The issue came back, I tried the same solution, no dice. The issue is that the rev limiter seems to kick in, or something, at 2500 RPM. What this entails is that if you hit the accelerator hard enough to hit those RPMs, fuel cuts out and the car jerks in and out of power. However, if you can keep the RPMs just below the 2500 mark, the car accelerates to a top speed of 70 MPH, this is where the top gear needs more RPMs to go any faster. Thoughts???

Rev limiter is at 6000rpm not 8500rpm

Hi Peter,

With such high revving engines (me being a Honda fanatic) you need to keep an eye on oil levels. Check the level, top up as necessary. Without the correct amount of oil in, the oil pressure cannot stimulate the switch over cam, which takes it to 8500rpm.

Also, please don't rev you car without load (ie. standing still), this causes valve lash and is detrimental to the engine. Again, please do not rev your car hard without letting the oil get up to temperature or it won't last long :)

Once you check your oil, reset the ECU by pulling the battery lead off for around 20 minutes.

Good luck and have a blast. Could you vote for me if this helps you. Thanks.

Check engine light came on last night,transmission will not up or down shift automaticly will shift manually,engine revs to 2500 until brake is depressed

Have the codes read with a scanner and do the repairs accordingly. May be a speed sensor or shift solenoids or the ECU.

Renplate fault scenic 1.9dci 55plate no power revs only to 2500 revs i do have clear particalate filter warning light on

Seems like the common low fuel pressure issue.

There is a hidden low pressure (3 bar) in line pump on Renault DCi's, I think it is on the passenger side flitch on your year.

Is it cold ( around -3 to +6) where you are?? This kills the inline pump because derv gets thick and glooky causing it to sieze up.

When this happens the HP pump is starved and revs limit to 2500.

Ferrari 360 modena f1 speed restriction, safe mode

This great car does not have speed limiter, as you said the limiter is starting because the ECU detects a problem and put the car in limp mode, starting the Rev limiter.

The only way to know the problem is by connecting the car ECU to a code reader, and interpreting codes.

If the car goes in limp mode when you press the brake pedal can be a brakes related problem or even a contact on the brake light wirings, check if the lights are are working.

Ask your mechanic to scan the ECU, this will tell you what the problem is.
