Default does a 2001 ranger edge 4.0

have a rev limiter? after installing the thermostat I was warming up the motor and when it got warmed up I thought I would goose it a bit it goes to 3k rpm but if you give t more throttle it chugs and hessitates really does not want to run any higher than 3k rpm while in park, I did a road test and it is just fine.
so just wondering whats up, if any thing might be bad

I guess you all can tell I am from the old school
rev limiter what the hell is that..lol
on mini bikes years ago we only had govenors...lol
I loved the old ford 351 clevlands and the (chevy) 283 motors piece of cake to work on

but then again my first car/truck was a 57/58 Ford Ranchero
57 front end 58 rear end wish I still had it

( here is a pic. of what the older Ford Rancheros looked like) this however was not mine , just a pic of the internet . shown for display only purpose

I am not 100% certain, but i think my 1985 Ranger didn't have a rev limiter.

its to keep people from blowing there motors. reving a motor with no load on it is one of the worst things you can do to a motor.

Ford started using the 3K park/neutral rev limiter in Rangers sometime around 2000MY. It is there to limit automatic transmission abuse. Manuals don't have it.

That's a good reason I guess. Still, it may be one of those things that seems overly cautious. But with a sporty truck like some of these are, the temptation to rev the hell out of it till she blows can overcome some people...

oh i wont if she hasn't blown yet i'm pretty sure it wont now. I have cut back on reving it up all the time. just letting people know that reving it up hasnt put a dent in my motor. i do change the oil every 2,000 miles also with synthetic so i have the cleanest running engine
