What happens at 3500 rpms? does it die? does it bog? does it catch on fire?

Re: WHO WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF LIMBO

So your car is getting low and going under a stick while listening to carribean music??

Oh.... U meant limp mode! Not limbo lol

Damn.. $400 what a steal!


If it's in limp mode.. It's in limp mode for a reason... So it doesn't F things up... Not sure what causes it to go into limp mode but I'm sure someone on here can help


And ur right.. Preludezone is the best prelude forum!

Re: WHO WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF LIMBO

the starter?? i thought the only function of the starter was to turn the fly wheel over at startup.


i'd research limp mode, see if any1 had something similar n what they did to fix

Re: WHO WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF LIMBO

Do you have a cel? If so what codes?

How long was it actually running well after you changed everything?

I would get a new starter, re-check the timing, check sensors ( I beilieve a bad map sensor will put you in limp mode) the distributor

Re: WHO WANTS TO PLAY A GAME OF LIMBO

Alright so lemme get something straightened out here, when your driving does the car bog and not let you go any higher than 3500rpms? I had a similar problem with thaty, go ahead and let us know about the check engine codes if there are any. I know its somewhat expensive but it could be your distributor, that did it for me. But get those codes man!
