    The exhaust does not have any blockages. Check engine light is not on and the plugs are new

Check your exhaust for blockage.  Also could be spark plugs.  If the check engine light is on then it's got a code in the computer.  Take it to a car parts store and have them hook up a scan tool.

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.

It limits the Max. RPM your engine can rev to in neutral so that engine damage is prevented. It is normally incorporated in the ECM / ECU unit.

I have a 2008 Ford Escape, 3.0L V6. I just had a Super 40 flowmaster professionally installed today. I never tried revving my engine in neutral before, but I tried today so I could hear what the new...


Hello there,

This is a normal operation, all your doing is hitting the rev limiter. It's there to protect the engine from over revving. The Powertrain Control Module or PCM cuts fuel to the engine intermittently to keep the engine from revving past a predetermined RPM when in "neutral", and in "park" if it's an automatic. Just in case something like a foreign object or a small child or animal were to inadvertently depress the accelerator pedal and rev the engine too high and damage the engine in result. I hope this info helps, and just for peace of mind, I am a Master Certified Ford Technician. Enjoy your new exhaust!! I'm sure it sounds great!!

My grang cherokee2002 us spec, while driving trnz changes fine but when cick down or full excelrate and RPM reaches 4.5 or 5 engine is loosing power and getting noisy and RPM not going more, while gear on...


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!
