Hello, my name is***** is a common symptom of a clogged catalytic converter. You can completely remove the front oxygen sensor from exhaust to se if that allows rpm to go further, if so you know the converter is clogged and needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
