Engine starts and idles fine, but will not rev up (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 diesel auto)


If it was a fuel shortage the engine would rev but to limited speed. This is a lack of air to throttle body. Check for clogged air filter and all the piping and the throttle body.

Idles fine cuts out at 2500rpms will not get past 2500rpms


The mass air flow sensor, on passenger side of throttle body, if that is disconnected or faulty, the engine will cut out at 2500rpm. And act like its bouncing off the rev limiter.

Engine revving problem


Sounds like your idle speed is way too high, should be somewhere around 800-1200 rpms. I would check for vacuum leaks.
