I had this exact issue. It was a timing issue. Basically, the spark plugs were dirty and could not fire at the correct time over 4000 RPMs. I replaced the plugs and wires and reset the check engine light. Runs better than ever now.

if you are revving the engine in park or neutral it will hit the rev limiter as this is designed into the computer so the engine won`t get damaged due to over revving.

Rev limiter


You'd probably have to get a reprogrammed or chipped engine computer. Removing the rev limiter though is a sure fire way to destroy your engine. Even Ferraris and Porches have rev limiters.

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