My 2002 XLT Ranger runs fine untill I reach 3100rpm and engine starts to cut out. Acts like it has a rpm limiter. Any thoughts on this problem?

It is a RPM limiter. Need a programmer to remove.

I figured it was a rev limiter, I just wondered because I see people reving their trucks on youtube to show their exhausts, and they seem to rev higher idk.

It is most likely not the cause of your problem, but my truck used to cut out/ hesitate around 70 mph on highway. Research I did associated it with camshaft syncronizer. Changed that, powers right past 70 now.
