Sound like you might have a large vacuum leak allowing un-metered air into the engine, either that or your throttle body might be physically sticking open. Possibly a frayed throttle cable.

make sure throttle linkage isn't pulling a little,try pushing throttle lever fwd and see if it drops down when it's racing if ok try mass airflow ,gm had problems with them,give it a hard tapping when its acting up and see if it clears out,dead giveaway

Driving along makes a very loud noise like motor is racing, but continue driving, noise goes away then starts again???


Please take a look at your Engine's RPMs when this is happening and let us know, as it will help with the diagnosis. If the Engine RPM is stable (not high during the periods of the racing engine sound), then it sounds like your Radiator Fan clutch may be going out. The noise you are hearing is the fan kicking in and blowing a lot of air, which in turn sounds like the engine is racing.

If the RPMs are increasing with the racing engine sound, it could be the transmission/(clutch if manual trans) slipping.
Hope this helps!

Limited 3000 rpm


it may be stuck in the cold start mode which is a bit like turning you ac on and the motor runs faster.. you may have a stuck solenoid valve on the tbi unit..

Car starts but when u change the gear it dont move


RPM at 800 , in drive
can you race motor in neutral, to 2500 rpm
?
1: does rpm rise above 1500 in drive and no movement, (slip and bad tranny)
2: or holds about 1500 but can move. (brakes frozen , with ice)
try to push car in neutral on flat ground, can you>
no , the brakes are iced.
yes, then engine power is bad.
with A/T trans, you get to first find out.
1: is engine weak.
2: is tranny slipping (races to very high rpm and no go)
3: or brakes ices, (post location so we can see climate, duh?

2003 Mazda Tribute sputters at 4000 rpm while in park and neutral, Is this normal? I heard that the rev limiter kicks off at this rpm


You would have to do some research to answer that
You could have an rpm limiter & should
The question is-- why would you bring the rpm up
to more than 3000 in park,no test requires more than that
You will some day ruin a motor doing so,unless it is a race car

The engine light


3000 rpm? This is pretty high for idle. You need to have the stored code read from the ECM. Usually this is a simple O2 sensor but with it racing to 3000 rpm I would have this diagnosed by a tech at a shop.
