    Is this limited to 2nd gear?

    And what happens when you hit 5500rpm
    Do you hit a wall? Or does it buck and kick?

    What happens when you rev pass 5.5k in the other gears? Does it splutter or rev freely?

    Strange. Bit like my blowers. Worked this morning on way to work. Then didn't on way home. Stripped out the glove box to make sure no plugs came out. And to test motor
    Turnt car on, and it was working!
    Some mysteries will remain unsolved!!!

    We all love self fixers aye

    if it comes back try check your map sensor. Right at the back of engine on the right side. They cheap to replace but mine had it where it was limited but in all gears really annoying
    i think on these the map and maf sensor is together if i remember correctly. Forgive me if wrong
