    get catalytic converter checked out. May be clogged.

    The diagnostic test will help pin point the problem. Also have them check the engine oil for contamination. You should stop driving the car until you have solved the problem since the gearbox clutches will cease. Had the same problem and ended up having the engine cleaned and the throttle sensor replaced. Now my car runs like a new engine.. Good luck

Why does my 2005 dodge ram 1500 3.7 liter only goes up to 4000 rpm when i reve it up and it starts to sputter when in park?


its the rev limiter. its suppose to do that when the engine has no load or the vehicle is stationary so you don't break the engine. now when your moving and it happens check fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter,etc.

It's possible one of your ignition coils went out if you have a check engine light have it scanned it will pinpoint that issue.

Possibly a vacuum leak. I'd try checking the hose going to the PCV valve as it's a common problem with Ford engines. They generally collapse and melt a hole through the rubber elbow on the valve end but have seen the opposite end do the same thing on occasion.

Engine cuts out and sputters at 4000 rpm. sometimes hard starting. Quad 4


cutting out and sputtering at 4000 rpms are normal, its the rev limiter kicking in, all of them do it, as far as hard starting, is it just sense its been cold?? might want to put some fuel stabilizer in it.
