cutting out at 4500 rpm
I need help with this quick.
For a couple weeks now i have been having problems with my engine cutting out at 4500 rpm. I have full power up til then, then pop pop pop, like i hit the rev limiter.
Its a 95 2.2l MT with 205k
I think its my MAF Sensor, its also been idling at 2000 rpm off and on. I get really strong fuel smells too.
Ive got cold air intake, obx headers to a cherry bomb with 24" of 2.25 pipe. Somebody i talked to mentioned that the flow rate of the exhaust might be too high since there is practically no restriction in my setup and it might be triggering a sensor to malfunction. But that would be an o2 sensor and i would have other running problems.
Anybody have ideas or support my MAF assumption?
It could have thrown a CEL, but ive had one constantly for about a month due to "vehicle speed sensor malfunction". I will need to get them read again to see if there is a new one.
