This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.

If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!

Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.

If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!

Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

Engine symbol light on dash on and motor will not rev. Vehicle is 100 series land cruiser petrol

Get it to a dealer. Or find a mechanic with diagnostic equipment. He will check the memory bank of the engine ecu. With the engine symbol on, it is warning you that something is wrong, and it is in limp mode.

Navara d40 has no power wont rev more than 3000 rev thanks

Sounds like your vehicle is in limp mode. Check for faults with a fault code scanner at a local auto parts store. Resetting the fault will fix the limp mode, but not whatever caused your vehicle to initiate limp mode.

Can rev up the RPM,s in nuetral but it will only idle when its in grear.What do u think

Your car is probably in the limp mode meaning it won't allow you to rev the engine with it in gear. I suspect something majorly is wrong with your tranny. Limp modes are put into effect when you car senses trouble so it may still be fixable without too any $$$. When was the last time you serviced the transmission ( oil and filter change?)

When I accelerate hard to pass my check engine light comes on and the vehicle goes into limp home mode.

Get the vehicle looked at by a garage. The reason it goes into limp home mode is to protect the engine from further damage. The reason the check engine light comes on is because the engine needs checking with some urgency.

Vehicle rev's or accelerates fine when started for just a minute. Then it wont rev up. When you push on the gas it just struggles. Wont really go much above 1500-1700 rpm. idles ok. It is a gasonline...

that sounds like a fuel delivery problem. either the filter is clogged or the pump is not delivering the right pressure. i assume you have no check engine light. this would not set one but other problems like sensors would. being 11 yrs old i would not be surprised if the fuel pump was worn out. good luck
