Based on your description it sounds like the transmission does not shift until the engine is reved pretty high. If that is the case there could be one of several problems. First is shift cable adjustment. If it is too tight it will cause your problem. More common is worn plastic check balls in the transmission valve body. When they wear out it will cause your symptoms. If the transmission shifts real hard then the revs go down it is probably your problem. A reputable transmission shop can repair in 2-3 hrs at minimum cost.

Assuming you have an auto transmission, your only choice is to ease off the gas when you want it to change gears. Then apply slight pressure on the gas to continue to accelerate.

Starts missing /large dead stop when accelerating


The missing while accelerating is likely due to ignition coils and/or spark plugs going bad. The missing while in park is a normal thing. The car has a rev limiter that will not allow the engine to rev to higher than 3000 RPM while in park.

sounds as if the accelerater cable broke, when you were able to throttle under the hood did you happen to notice if the accelerater cable was moving freely.

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.

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

REVS TOO HIGH WHEN COLD...........


High RPM is by purpose. Reason is to get engine hot as quickly as possible to reduce emissions. There is nothing to worry about. I am sure if engine is warm/hot then you wont see high RPM even if you resart it.
