It sounds like the Torque converter might be failing or the tranny needs work. Look at the tranny dipstick to see if an metallic specs exist. A good tranny filter change/ system flush with a pressurized collection system will always do a world of good. how long has it been for you? if its a 4wd do the front diff and the transfercase as well.

When your driving or when in park?

If it wont go over in park this is normal. It is the rev limiter kicking in so that the engine will not self destruct.

I have a 2002 durango 4.7. I have a hard time starting it hot or cold.when i get it started it idles fine for a few minuts and then rpm drop and wants to stall out,The truck runs great wile driving but...


First off, how new is your battery and how many miles on the D? Dodge vehicles are very sensitive to a failing battery. Have it load tested, and if is the least bit flaky, replace it.

After that, the TPS or throttle postion sensor is your next.

As far as the revving up and down above 3000 rpm goes, that is the PCM protecting the engine from over revving.

When turn on the car in the morning, i accelerate and the revolutions up to 6,000rpm normal. In 3 minute when the car up the motor temperature to the normal operation, i accelerate and the revolutions up...


To begin with, if you are revving a cold engine to 6000 RPM, you are asking for a blown engine. Most OBD vehicles are equipped with a rev limiter that will cut off fuel at 3000 to 4000 rpm to prevent you from over-revving your engine and blowing it up. If yours is revving to 6000 RPM cold, then the rev limiter, for some reason is not working while it is cold. I have no explaination for this. The best thing I can tell you is to stop revving your engine so high when it is cold unless you really want to see what an engine looks like after is has gone off like a grenade.

Car is boging out in park and will not go over 3000 rpm in park and throttle all the way to floor. also i get the scent of burned oil coming from underhood. on a 2000 jaguar s type


If it only stops at 3000 rpm in park, it probably has a governor to prevent you from revving it over 3000 rpm with no load on it. That isn't very good for engines. As long as it goes over 3000 while driving, don't worry about it.
