My 95 wont rev over about 5400....Help!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just bought a 1995 993 with 79k miles yesterday. The PPI was perfect with the note that the clutch pedal is a bit low and it may need a clutch sometine soon. That isnt a problem since I plan on pitting in a LW flywheel. Anyway, Since I flew to New Jersey to pick it up and I had to drive back about 600 miles I didnt beat on the car at the test drive. I did driive it but didnt go over 5k. And it runs great. So basically, Im driving back yesterday and had to go around a semi and I had to run it up to get around him (Plus I just wanted to have a little fun) and it wouldnt pull over 5k or so. The car just felt lke bad gas or something. The car has been a garage queen for the last 3 years. Anyway, I ran the car down to 1/2 tank and filled it up and it felt like it was getting better (I mean it would rev a bit higher) but not to redline. Sometimes it would get almost to 5800 but thats it. So I ran that tank out until the light was on and filled it up again for the last 100 miles of the trip (Right at Mid Ohio actually

and it still wont go to redline. I got home at midnight and I love the car but I just need to figure this out!!! Help! PS, I did do a search. THanks!!! Mark

sitting for 3 years? is there a nest in the air filter restrictin the intake air flow?

you might have stuck injectors, run some techron through them to clean them up

1995 model also have an engine wiring harness recall, check with PCNA on that

thinking of a light weight flywheel, think again for the street. the dual mass flywheel absorbs engine vibrations with out that the trans sounds like it is coming apart at idle. also coming down at from normal speeds the lighter weight of the flywheel does not keep the engine rotating like the dual mass and the engine stalls. the only fix for the stalling is to get a euro DME that is not EPA approved.

just a voice of experience that gave these warings to customers and they wanted it anyway, then paid me again to install the dual mass back in
