car will not go over 2k rpm
jus bought a 96 200sx se-r and starts and runs fine just if you give it gas, it acts as if it has a rev limiter at 2k rpm.. same if you try to drive it of course....i have been told by a few ppl that it may be a resistor in the dist. or that it may be the ecu...just thought id get a little info before getting into it....thanks!

p.s. just bought 2...one's a parts car...may be looking to part out after i get one running..

Is your MAF plugged in?

A buddy of mine showed me that if you unplug it and rev the motor it acts like a 2-step. Check your MAF ground and other connections, Also try and get some CRC MAF cleaner and spray that chit in there ont he resistor thingy.

x2 on the maf. Your ecu is in "limp mode" and is more than often from a bad or disconnected maf.

I know on my 1.6l 200sx it overheated one time and put a ghost code out and wouldn't go over 2000rpm nissan wanted an arm and a leg to clear it. I just unhooked the battery for a day and it cleared by itself
