Rev Limiter question
I've been looking at all the posts about rev limiters and I haven't run across one that addresses my issue so I was hoping I could get an explanation by posting my own thread. If any of you can help please reply to this thread.
I have a 2001 Ranger Edge 4.0 and I know the rev limiter is supposed to kick in at around 3K rpm in park/neutral but mine also kicks in while driving on the highway. I was recently in a situation on the interstate where I had to speed up to avoid trouble and when I hit a little over 80mph which was around 3k rpm my rev limiter activated and I was unable to accelerate. Fortunately I was able to get out of the way of the trouble but it would have helped to have some more power.
My question is this. Is the park/neutral rev limiter also a top speed limiter and supposed to do this? If so, is there a tuner I can get that will eliminate the high speed limiter?
Thanks for any help!
