2.2tdci Duratorq Engine wont rev above 3000rpm
« on: October 20, 2015, 11:48:20 AM »
2.2tdci Duratorq. Engine wont rev above 3000rpm when first started after engine has been stood for awhile (over night or all day). When first started engine will rev to 3000rpm then feels like it hits a rev limiter? Once engine has run for four/ five minutes and gets some heat into it then operates fine...very confusing. No fault codes recorded, MAF sensor changed, been into local Ford garage, they couldn't find any fault. All filters fuel etc been changed. On occasions if MAF sensor unplugged and then re-plugged it will run fine. Auto electrician tested circuitry could find no fault ... First noticed after we had had the cam belt and water pump changed, not sure if it it is linked to that repair? Love the car but this fault is very annoying. Any guidance or ideas would be much appreciated.

If you've only had/ noticed this problem since the timing belt was replaced I'd consider making sure that the cam timing was set correctly when they replaced it. There have certainly been cases of incorrect cam timing causing cold starting issues on the Mk2 Galaxy.
Always learning..... Often by mistakes!

Many thanks for feed back. Have had timing checked by a local garage and Ford dealer. Timing has been set correctly. They both informed me that even timing out by one tooth, engine wouldn't run?
Have re-checked around engine bay and inspected as many electrical connections as I can get access too ... problem still persists.
Have recently run fuel cleaner through engine, Archoil AR6400D engine runs much smoother now and is livelier picking up from low revs.
Original problem still active, am beginning to think might have to live with it?

My wife's S max has just had the same issue occur.  Cambelt and water pump changed and hits rev limiter for the first 3 to 4 minutes. 

We have had the car since new so we know the history.  Always serviced etc.

Did you ever find a cure ?

If so could you share.
