Loss of power and won't go over 3000 rpms

Truck lossed power, and I noticed that in any gear it won't accelerate passed 3000 rpms. In nuetral it will but not with a load. Now it doesn't cut out or act sluggish really, it acts as if there's a rev limiter.
Any Ideas?

When driving my 1997 Audi A 4 1.8t there is a loss of power around 3000 rpm, what could be causing the issue?


run the fault codes and look for a problem area in the vane actuator of the turbo
it could be a sensor problem or a MAP sensor problem
this is indicated by the pressures being generated or not generated by a turbo generating pressure from the throttle opening on acceleration or held at constant speed

I have 2000 hyundai sonata, 4cyl...bought 6 mos ago..i noticed the rpm's go all the way to 3 when on highway...and transmission delays to switch gears....will i have transmission problems. pleae tell me...


You may need to have your transmission serviced. That would be a filter and fluid change. Any fast lube place can do that for you. I should think that if there was a problem with the transmission, the check engine light would come on. 3000 rpms does seem a bit high for the highway. Of course, you did not say how fast you were going. My wife tends to have a heavy foot in our 07 Elantra. She keeps the rpms up there around 2500rpm. That's about 80mph. My sincere condolences for your loss. God Bless.
