Simple tune up could do it, or a bad MAF or MAP sensor could give similar problems

Why won't my 2003 ford ranger 3.0 accelerate past 40km/h


Not sure what you have determined the truck is doing

If the rpm flairs the trans is slipping & done

If it won't go over 40 mph the exhaust converter is damaged
& blocked

Not much you can do,need professional help

Cannot accelerate past 40 mph


Hi,
Does it rev ok? If your motor revs high but still doesn't go fast, you could be having a transmission issue, where it's not shifting into high gear... I'm assuming it's an automatic.
I hope this gets you on track... Good luck.

sounds like the speed sensors. there are 2 of them. High and low speed. run about $20 each and are VERY common on dodge's. if you get a code 25 that is the problem.

When I accelerate it does a fluctuation in gears...the rpm goes up and down...even when im driving at 40 mph it shifts then it hesitates at that speed..could it be the throttle sensor is dirty?


Is the "check engine" light on??? to isolate your problem have you tried MANUALLY shifting the trans (automatic) and still doing it?? check the fluid level and condition of the oil...sound more like the trans is slipping...the "TP" sensor will effect the engine and trans.But not cause over-reving......hope this helps...GL
