You have a failed sensor somewhere in the power train. It could be any one of a half dozen sensors. You are running in what they call "limp" mode. It lets you limp home. Take it to Advance Auto parts and they will read out the computer error codes for free. That should tell you what sensor(s) is bad. Just replace it and you should be good to go. Could be more than one sensor.

My mazda drifter 2.5 D don't rev over 3000 rpm and don't go over 120 km when its in 5th gear,its like limiting.What can it be it never did it?


When you rev the engine and does not go over 3000 rpm is this in neutral or when driving in gear? Some vehicles have a rev limiter to not allow rpm over certain point when in neutral gear but is typically not limited when driving vehicle. This sounds like a very low rev limit but not abnormal if you can get engine to rev higher when driving. You call a drifter so truck must be non US market. Is this engine a 2.5 liter diesel 4 cylinder motor. Might just be your top rev and speed if this is the case.

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.

I have 2000 V8 LS thatruns rough in park and at idle in drive.


That is normal.
If you rev it in park it will not rev over 3500 rpm before it hits the rev limiter.
