Hello, Eddie here and I will try to help. If it's in neutral, and your sitting still, does the engine rev up past 3K then?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No. If you are a Ford mechanic you should know most of the Rangers have rev limiters in them to protect you form over reving in neutral. That is with an automatic or a manual tranny. The 2.5 liter motor I have in mine should rev to 6,000 rpms in gear while driving down the road. I hit a wall at 3,000. The power band for these 4 cylinders is from 4,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm. Why can I not get there?
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
I didn't think the manual transmissions had a rev limiter. But i'm not 100% on that. Is this the factory exhaust? Have you checked the cat, to see if it was clogged?

Had both of the O2 sensors out of it and the exhaust pipe unbolted. Same thing. Will not go over 3,000 in gear. Coule it be a computer thing???
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Is it setting any codes?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Check engine light is not on. Have not had the codes checked.
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Alright, I'd like to see if anything was stored or not. If no codes are stored, and the exhaust isn't clogged, in my opinion it would about have to be the PCM, unless the ignition coil or module is breaking down under load. which is not likely.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
