I bought a 2.5 rs 2001 and when you floor it it launches and as soon as you hit 3500-3700 it starts coughing spitting missing, as long as you shift before that rpm its fine. It has all its power and has no drivablity issues other then that. What do you think it oculd be?

Check that the O2 sensor is plugged in. Both of them. Check for codes also. Sounds like the sensor is unplugged or bad. Sounds like it is going into limp mode.

sounds like a problem i had. how much fuel do you have? this happens to me anytime i have less than 1/4 tank. some say it can happen with as much as 1/2 tank. i was a little worried the first time it happened to me and i went to the fuel station spend 60 bucks and problem solved.good luck/

oh its the flux capacitor with out a doubt






i would guess dirty injectors too. because since they are letting alot more fuel out (hight revs) i would do, new plug/wires, and some fuel injector cleaner
