Hits rev limiter @4k while IN gear?!

Post by Rez0nate » Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:13 pm

Floor it to get on the fwy, car begins to speed up normally, hits 4k and starts to bounce of the rev limiter, I let off and it shifts into 3rd and drives normal as long as throttle isnt wide open. Used to go all the way to 6500 before shifting, now it hits 4000 and bounces? Any ideas?

Your neutral safety switch could be broken, causing it to hit the rev limiter. Any check engine lights?

Yes I just replaced the fluid/filter 2 months ago.. had to replace the tcc solenoid due to other issues. Car was running great until this started happening?
