Although I am not familiar with your particular engine, some have a "rev limiter" which can fail and cause your issue. Older cars had a rotor button in the distributor which would open the spark circuit when a certain speed is reached, but yours probably has and electronic limiter. Also, some ignition modules have a low speed and separate high speed module, which may have failed. May be best to let a dealer do the diagnostics, then fix the problem yourself once you know what it is.

Corsa utility 1.4 failing to start and it is not giving a spark. it flashes the spanner light about 5 second after turning the key on please tell me what is the problem


Hello Sibusiso,

(From the 2009 Corsa Owners Manual)

Your Immobilizer system checks whether the engine is allowed to start with the key being used. If the transponder in the key is recognised, the engine can be started.

The electronic immobiliser activates itself automatically after the key has been removed from the ignition switch. If control indicator "spanner light" flashes when the ignition is on, there is a fault in the system; the engine cannot be started.

Switch off the ignition and then repeat the start attempt.
If the control indicator continues flashing, attempt to start the engine using the spare key and seek the assistance of a workshop.

See 2009 Owners Manual at the link below.

It's a safety issue. The computer is trying to save your engine and transmission. If there isn't a light, there still could be a code. It would be in history codes. It takes a scanner to retrieve them. Unless your a race car driver or doing 200 MPH all the time. The RPM's shouldn't stay at 4000 RPM's.

Slow throttle response on my 1.4 corsa utility


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

Between 3000 and 4000 RPM engine stutters


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

03 mitsubishi endeavor engine cuts out at 4000 rpm when driving revs fine when in neutral. It has no engine codes. any ideals?


At 4000 rpm what does your speedo say. Your computer may be limiting both your mph and your rpms. I have a 2004 Ford Ranger at 90 mph the engine sputters and seems to miss. It will stay at 90. In neutral it revs fine. My problem is because of chip programming in the computer. Your problem may be the same.

Spradic problem


Try to have the mechanic look for "downshift kickdown" service info. When you are driving and the cars computer senses a load that is beyond the limit of the present gear, the car will downshift into a lower gear to match the load.
The inbetween gear time is when the RPM rises because the gears want to change and the transmission has not caught up with the engine.
Some of this can be adjusted with the hydraulic pressure in the transmission. The torque converter supplies the pressure and the rebuilt trans needs to be matched with the torque converter.
Go back to the trans shop.

WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE


Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

Car starts and idols fine but once you get it to 4000 rpm it cuts out and then every time you hit the gas it will accelerate then cut out. it doesn't die out until you do this for a long time.


Ya know First i never drive a car at 4ooo RPMS cant remember when but anyway.
Check the Intake Air tube the goes into the air cleaner and throttle body for cracks and cuts and being loose. Fuel Pressure have it checked while you are driving to make sure your noy loosing fuel pressure at the high Rs. Ignition System Factory Plugs and wires no fancy discount suppose to increase horsepower stuff
