I had a 2000 Jaguar Stype, When the engine is on, in parking mode, I tried to rev up the engine. Nut the RPM only went up to 3000 RPM. It won't pass 3000. IT was not like that before. Could it be a one of the intake sensor ? Please help, thank you in advance.

Do revs work ok when driving, fly by wire system may not let it free rev.

The Ford 5-speed box would limit the revs to 3000 to prevent damage. The ZF 6-speed box disconnects completely and will let the engine do what it wants.

Who on earth in their right mind revs an engine in neutral is beyond me though.

Nope :wink:. High revs on an unloaded engine is Not A Good Thing.
The man is correct. I cannot think of one valid reason for a person wanting to do something like that. Might sound great, but so does an engine block when the side suddenly gets a big hole in it.
