I just baught a ba ute not going,i soon found out it had water in the tank i drained and cleaned the tank and fitted a new filter and it started great but it will only rev to 3500 i changed the oxy sensor still the same i also swaped the throttle body from my other car and it has no change plus i also changed the exaust thinking it may have a blocked muffler or cat,i do not know what else to try,if any of you have had a problem like this i would love to hear what the problem was

Well i changed the maf sensor and tried another throttle body,still no change,when i rev the car the butterfly only opens about half way and you cant even push it any more than that,but when the engine is off and the key turned on you can get full movement of the butterfly wherever you put the accelerator butterfly will follow,so something is telling it to stop while running.

is it displaying what gear its in correctly? b series have a rev limiter in park and neutral.
is it selecting gears properly? When in "Limp Home Mode" the ECU shift locks the auto.

It goes through the gears fine,if it were in limp home mode there would be a light on the dash showing up and also the gears would show a flashing 0 ,in regards checking codes there is nothing showing a code on the dash.i would love to get a code reader but all that i have looked at do not cover the ba
thanks for the input

You will need to get the codes checked.

Do you know anyone with an Xcal X3 Flash tuner?

Any decent Auto Elec or Mechanical Workshop should be able to pull the codes for you for reasonable price.

Engine revs in neutral/Park are restricted to lower revs, so the ECU may be reading that. Could also be as Ted has said, Accelerator Pedal.
