Engine revs is too high when in neutral gear


First thing check for engine control module fault codes, if you have a lean running code then you have a vacuum leak on the engine, this allows air to bypass the idle speed control system and raises the idle up. Another issue is a sticking Idle speed control air bypass valve, but that is not common and vacuum leaks are.

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.

2001 jetta wont rev over 3000 rpms


Please take a code check , it is possible that the timing is incorrect or the fuel pressure is offset.
Make sure that the vehicle had undergone the regular check ups in the said mileage clocked. If not you must attend to the company specified routine service schedule.
Engine oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter,timing belts,fuel pressure, code checks, etc..,.

2003 Jetta TDI vibrates above 35 speed


With 180k I would change the engine mounts. They are about the only thing that would dampen engine vibration and noise (assuming that the engine is running ok). There is likely one or all weak or broken. Normally when you have a vibration at speed then it is going to be driveline or wheel balance.

Engine will rev. No drop in speed, no increase in


likely what you are seeing is the first signs of slipping. If permitted to continue, likely it will get worse and you will then lose a bit of speed when it happens. In warmer weather the trans runs a bit hotter and will react to that. If you cannot hear the revs increasing but the tach says they are, it's also possible that for some reason the tach isn't reading correctly. Any good tech should be able to tell the difference. Problem I have is that I'm here and can't drive it to give you a "definite" on either.The only way to verify this yourself would be to attach an external tach to the engine and compare the rpms of the one in your dash to that one.
