Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and Welcome.
My name is ***** ***** happy to help / advise.
Certainly if it wont go above 1500 rpm - AND its overheating ...as you describe, there is a need to check the timing.
An engine that has the timing out - retarded , will do exactly as you have outlined - so yes I would advise to start by re checking that and go from there -
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --Best Rgds, MIKE
