167 on the clock..new plugs 6 months ago, just checked them,little dirty but not 2 bad..New petrol pump,new battery,new maf,nearly new plugs,..Could those symtoms be due to limp mode caused by trans probs? Seems like its playing up since these things started...Strange shifts and slight vibration through the auto shift stick at about three thousand revs...This car has cost me alot in the past year but i shoulda checked it better before i purchased it....Like R P said....Nobodys fault but mine....

it happen when the car moving or not?

i bet you changed your engine oil and oil filter

change your trans fluid and try again, not limp mode.

fuel filter changed?

If you try to rev it while parked/in neutral, be aware that the engine computer will apply a rev limiter. So you will NOT be able to rev it to the red line while in park or neutral.
