It's designed that why,so you don't damage it. It cuts off at around 3300 to 3500 in park and you say neutral.

MY 2009 FORD F750 WONT GO PAST 65MPH Y


It likely has a governor which limits speed. Used on rentals alot. Was it a rental at one time?
Read the sheet on this page under "Check Operation" F1 F2 F3 "Governor cut-out pressurekPa (psi) Governor cut-in pressurekPa (psi) Verify warning lamp and alarm operation (F-650/F-750 Only)"and notice the governor."

See it (blue box I drew over it on pic below) on pgs. 328-330 of manual (takes FOREVER to load! Its a big pdf).
here it is (OK so its below)

Pg.396 says under 7. "7.Installation of a gasoline engine speed governor is permissible, provided the governor design is compatible with each respective throttle body for the individual engine application and it does not exceed specified engine maximum RPM. It must also meet all noise and engine emission requirements. Governor installations may affect electronically controlled transmissions. Contact Ford Truck Body Builders Advisory Service before installing."

Since its saying it CAN be installed then it obviously can be uninstalled to be like original.


Get it removed? :)

Kind Regards,
Scott

1987 escort doesnt shift untill 3000 rpm


Depending on what gearing setup the car was originally put on, most cars that I have owned that were automatic shifted between 3000 and 4000 RPM. My 97 Ford Escort ZX2 needed to shift around 2000 RPm from 1st into 2nd, but it was a manula which allows you to feel the point of shift alot better. maybe have your onboard computer checked and tranny serviced.

1998 Ford Contour rough idle when i turn my air conditioning on


Rough idleing, especialy when the air condition is on, is really quite normal for old cars. I drive a 96 corolla and when the airconditioner is turned on, the car will make a deep whining noise. It should stop when shifted into drive(automatic) or gear(manual) in most cases, it is not a serious problem. However, if you feel the idle is too rough, i would recommend fuel additives designed for highmilage cars. I use fuel injector cleaner. after many uses, my rough idle ended. If after trying this, you find the idle to still be to high or rough, have a talk with your local mechanic. Hope this helps

My ford contour 2.0L Fi Automatic- can't go more


The vehicle has a rev limiter. Will it rev over 3500 when you drive it? If no, then I would guess that the exhaust might be partially restricted. But the engine computer won't allow you to free rev the engine that high in park and neutral.

1995 ford fairmont wont rev past 4000 rpm


After 1993 the OBD 2 EEC system in most cars provides an electronic governor which keep the engine from over reving. However, with the proper factory tool the computer can be programmed to a higher governor limit.

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

1997 Ford Contour Transmission


I had the same problem. A $35.00 Neutral Safety Switch took care of it. Takes about 15 or 20 minutes tops to replace it. Everyone I spoke too wanted to rebuild the tranny for about 122 to 15 hundred. I did a lot of research on here and found the problem.
