My1991 mazda 626 will not rev up over 3000 rpm

DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING? Or do you mean sitting and reving the engine? If you are just reving the engine in park then the rev limiter is kicking in.

1995 geo tracker .. when start the truck it idles at 3000 rpm and when shifting between gears it idles high at 3000 rpm .. it randomly started this but i also noticed when it started doing that my lighter...

I doubt it has anything to do with your lighter/aux, but change the fuse on it and see if that corrects the problem. Check to see if you can pull the gas pedal back with your hand and see if that lowers the RPM. Old cars can wear the parts that make your pedal rise fully back up.
There is also the intake adjustment screw near where your intake meets the manifold. It's usually a phillip's screw. This will lower or raise your RPM levels on idle. You may have to adjust the screw. Every time you make 1/4 turn adjustments, you need to let the car run for awhile as the process is gradual and NOT immediate. This is the steps I would take because I know my cars, but if you feel uncertain, please take it to a mechanic. Best of Luck!

I have a 2006 malibu lt.It stalls when I go up hills and when my rpm get to 3 rpm...the car almost cuts off.What do you think the problem is.Some people tell me its the catalytic converter..others say its...

There are o2 sensors in the exhaust system either side of the converter. Look somewhat like spark plugs with wires going to them.

You say 3 rpm, do you mean 300 or 3000 ( I am guessing 3000)???

I do not believe any engine will run at 3 rpm.

Is this a manual trans, I assume so.

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.

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.
