Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
WHEN I TURN ON MY CAR IN THE MORNING TO WARM IT UP, I RAVV THE ENGINE AFTER A COUPLE MINUTES, AND I NOTICED THAT MY RPM GAUGE DOES NOT GO PAST 3. AS SOON AS IT HITS THE 3 IT DIES RIGHT THERE AND THER IS NO MORE POWER. I HAVE PUSHED THE GAS PEDAL, BUT IT DOESNT DO ANYTHING IT WOULD JUST NOT GO PAST THE 3 OR 3000 RPM. THE CAR RIDES FINE, NO PROBLEMS, BUT THIS IS A LITTLE ANNOYING. DOES ANYONE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM?
Rpm limiter sensor or the vehicle is in limp mode
have the fault codes read to find any faulty sensor , then use a scan tool to reset the ECM

SOURCE: can't pass 3000 rpm
need to check codes and see if it has oil in it. and go from here.
if the computer sences low oil pressure it sets a rev limiter to try and save the engine. code P1259 i think. 4 or 6 cyl?

faulty dial, remove the instrument panel and spray some switch cleaner in to the back of the dial, if this doesn't work you'll need to replace the dial
