Question about 1995 Toyota Tacoma

Open Question

Rev limiter My Tacoma with a 3.4 v6 manual trans. has sat all winter, when I took it out this spring it acts like the rev limiter kicks in at 3000 rpm instead of the around 6000 it should. Is there a sensor that causes the Rev Limiter to kick in that needs to be replaced?

SOURCE: engine will not rev past 2000 rpm

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.

SOURCE: Runs real lean and surges under throttle massive loss of power

I had a very close problem, i had to have the fuel injecters cleaned. The truck runs 10 times better now. I had even changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, rotor and wires. have the injectors cleaned that could solve your problem

Hello! The likely culprit is the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS)...A Black button device with a 5 pin connector which is held in place by 2 bolts...It is located on the throttle body...Wire colors are; Red, Black, Brown and Blue...Cost is around $130...

If you have a voltmeter it can be tested...Straighten out 2 paper clips and push them into the rear of the connector on the Red and Black wires...Set the meter to read 5 volts...Hook the + lead to Red and - to Black...With engine at idle meter should read less than 1 volt (approx .85V)...Slowly increase throttle...voltage should rise SMOOTHLY to 4 volts...If voltage skips, jumps, or acts erratic the TPS is defective...

SOURCE: Truck misses at 3500 rpm as if that is what the

the camshaft position sensor is a $40 - $70 part at rockauto.com, depending on your engine. first check the connections to the sensor to make sure the computer is getting a good signal. You may have to remove the sensor and look into the mounting hole to see if there is an obstruction that may be blocking a proper signal. check the wiring to see if it may have corrosion or a short to ground.

Could be a few issues, why was the tranny replaced? If the old one was failing badly and had any metal bits in the fluid etc, and you reused the same torque converter, that may be part of the problem. Was the system thoroughly flushed out before filling it back up? If not, same issue as torque converter is possible. If a new converter was used, was it filled up before you installed it? After sitting for so long the pump seals could have dried and the pump could be leaking, causing all kinds of problems.

2003 Mazda Tribute sputters at 4000 rpm while in park and neutral, Is this normal? I heard that the rev limiter kicks off at this rpm


You would have to do some research to answer that
You could have an rpm limiter & should
The question is-- why would you bring the rpm up
to more than 3000 in park,no test requires more than that
You will some day ruin a motor doing so,unless it is a race car

2006 Chrysler Pacifica won't go over 3000 rpm


When your driving or when in park?

If it wont go over in park this is normal. It is the rev limiter kicking in so that the engine will not self destruct.

My1991 mazda 626 will not rev up over 3000 rpm


DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING? Or do you mean sitting and reving the engine? If you are just reving the engine in park then the rev limiter is kicking in.

Runs rough under load ,stalls and won,t free rev over 4000 rpm. Acts like rev limiter kicks on.


Hi

one of 3 faults

1 MAF sensor also Known as air mass sensor
2 EGR valve, this is most common with the 4000 rev limit and a top speed of say 50 mph
3 air leaks or tears in air pipes or poor seals.

I would be tempted to clean both the EGR and MAF sensor before spending any money though, these parts ofetn work much lonegr when clean

Have a 2003 taurus with 3.o liter v6. At around 4200 rpm the engine starts to miss like it is a rev limiter. Am I right or is this another problem. Is smooth all the way to 4200 and then misses  ...


Yes it will act like it has a miss if the car is in park and you rev the car up, but if you are going down the road and hit 4200 rpm's it should not. Try checking the computer and see if it has any codes pending or hard codes in it.

It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
