SOURCE: mass airflow meter


It is fitted to the air filter outlet hose (the one which goes from the air filter to the turbo) and it is quite literally right next to the air filter. It has a wiring plug to it.

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 pulling back.What can it be it never did it?I use to push it 160 km @ 5000 rpm before

So it did rev higher and go faster before i see. 160kph equates to almost 100 mph!!! In that truck?? You nuts!! I put my Mazda Millenia supercharged V6 to 140mph in Nevada but that was on straight roads with no curves in site for miles ahead. Haha. Ask again if this is a diesel motor in truck. That sounds like getting close to limit of capacity of engine but if more was expected and received before then would look at an exhaust restriction first. Do you have catalytic converters on the truck?

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.

Loss of power in fourth gear on 1979 ford f250 with 351 motor and 4bbl carb

This is a lengthy string ... but might be useful. It goes over all sorts of things ...
stumped carb backfire uphill at higher RPM
But one of the guy's issue with the new 4bbl carb was that his floor mat under the accelerator pedal limited just how far open the second set of bbls could open so he had loss of power at higher speeds.

My honda 2003 jerks when i change gear from to Reverse or Drive. Also, when on Neutral or Park, the revs/s is about 2. i dont know if that's normal. thanks

The revs should be around 700- 900 rpm while in neutral. Revs about 2 (2000 rpm) is absolutely abnormal, and of course the vehicle will **** with any gear change. Furthermore, continued operation of the car in this condition will damage the transmission. Seems like the idle sensor, MAP sensor or other part is working incorrectly. Take vehicle to a shop for a scan of the computer and repair, in order to save the VERY costly transmission.

I have a 99 mustang v6 3.8 automatic. The problem that I am having is that when the transmission is going into 3rd gear it revs higher (about 2300 - 2500 rpm) before going into 4th gear and this usually...

Sounds like a solenoid problem, which is causing a fair or slippage into 3rd gear. If you have a solenoid pack in trans, you need to change it. Don't drive it at all ,that way. Find out what trans unit or model you have,by stopping at a trans shop and asking lots of questions. Then go home, pull the pan and change yourself,if applicable.

My truck won't rev more than 3,000 rpm's or go faster than 40 mph. Idles okay , runs okay at low speeds and low rpm's. I can't even get on the freeway, takes a long time to pick up any speed.

A couple easy things to check out are your fuel filter and air filter. The fuel filter can be very restricted and cause a similar problem. , The air filter, not so much.
Plugged up catalytic converters can cause a loss of power too.! Hope you find your problem..

Acutally there is 3 position settings for the transmission selector, the power setting which changes the shift points higher ,more rpm's, center position basic auto selection the transmission selects the best driving gears based on your habits, and the comfort mode which shifts the transmission easily and smoothly, no high rev shifts, best for good fuel mileage, but if you need to get on it it will go.
