Wont rev past 3000 at idle?? 110 cdi

Hi all,
I have been working on the van most of the day today cleaning inside and out. I had the engine running for around 20 mins when it got dark so I could have the rear lights on in the back without the risk of flattening the battery. When I had finished I reved the van up a little bit as to make sure the battery had some beans and found it wouldnt rev past 3000 rpm. Is this normal? There were no warning lights on the dash etc. The van was idling at the time when I reved it. The van is a 110 cdi vito 1999 any advice appreciated. Cheers Paul.

Hello Paul.

As far as I'm aware there's a safety interlock that prevents you over revving the engine when at a standstill (linked to the handbrake, I think).

Take the van for a spin to see if it revs past 3000rpm. If it doesn't then you're in limp mode & will have to do some head scratching to reveal what's caused it.

If it revs freely then you've nothing to worry about!

Hope this helps.

Good luck,

Rob

Yep perfectly normal.

You'll have fun when you go for an MOT as well when they try and rev it up for the emissions test

CDi Accelerator pedal issue

I'm new to this forum but i will try my luck if i can get advices from you guys.
I have my CDi 110 for 3 years now, and it clocks at 56,000kms. I had minor problems before as you did with yours, but in the last 2 weeks now, i'm having a new one, the throttle seem to cut off from time to time but not in a regular manner, the engine idles even when driving at any speed, no matter how you step on the pedal it won't accelerate and the rev meter remains at idle. I stop and put the gear to neutral and then to drive, and it goes back as if nothing happened. The mechanic said, its the accelerator pedal switch which has to be replaced.
