From the top (ENGINE)

Ok last month my sister got stuck in the mud in her neon. I went to pick her up in my car and bottomed out. i tore the arms loose on the cat back. well the next morning my car will only rev to 3k. not thinking it was the exaust I changed. FPR, PLUGS, AFM, FUEL PUMP RELAY, FUEL PUMP, FUEL TANK VENTILATION VALVE, COIL, AIR FILTER, F.I sensor, coolant sensor, adjusted valve's. still my car won't go past 3k unless i'm easy doing it. My car will go from 3k to like 2500 check engine light come's on it. I think it's the exaust. only thing's I got is fuel filter, tps, wire's and i'v pretty much replaced everything.

any help would be great!!!!

I had a similar issue with a 89 IX that would not rev past 3000rpm and replaced all kinds of parts until i checked the cap and rotor and found the bolts on the rotor were coming loose to the point of losing them .
I redid the bolts on the rotor and voila ...
So you never know what it could be.

Good luck

check your crank sensor and the wires connecting it.

02 sensor and wire as well

you may have knocked the internals of the cat loose and its plugging the exhaust wich could possibly cause that problem.

well i know the night it started the exaust was knocked loose. I unplugged the #6 wire and it quit until like 5k so i'm thinkin it's back pressure from the exaust and where's the crank sensor? and for the o2 sensor i unplugged it and still the same thing.

oh yeah when i'm in netural it will go all the way to 6k w/o cutting out. just doe's the 3k when i'm in gear. The check engine light will come on to until it goe's down to like 2500rpms. i'm gonna check the rotar thing out and the cps hopefully it will solve it. If not i will move on to the exaust.
