Wont rev over 3000rpm when driving
Im hoping for some ideas to my new alfa problem
I have recently bought a engine for my GTV the old one needed a cam sensor and used alot of oil.
The new one came with not many miles and checked over the company changed the cam belt but not the sensor. The engine has been changed and all the bits taken off the old one and put on the new one it fired up first time but didnt come up with code.
The engine revs well all the way up the rev range but on the road test it wouldnt go past 3000 rpm and struggles with hills. we left the car for a few hours and re started the car and reved the car again and the code light came on. Could the car be in the safe mode wanting me to find the brown key which is in a safe place so safe i have spent all evening looking it or is it the more likely the sensor
