5K rpm and that is it. need help pls.

my car stop going beyond 5K rpm. Once it gets there, it acts as if there is a rev limiter, it won’t go up higher and it jerks/bog at the 5000 mark. would it be an ECU problem? it is automatic if it matters. TIA.

it could be your distributor, my distributor was bad once and it wouldn’t let me get pass 3k.


thx, will check that tomorrow.


I am having this same exact problem with my 5 spd B20. It wont let me rev past 5800 and when i hit that it bogs and stutters really bad.

It even does it when im just sitting there and I rev the motor. any other idea’s?
