Default Ranger 2003 (2,5L Diesel) problem

Hello everybody.

I have a Ranger (2003) with a 2.5L Diesel 4-cyl.

Since a few days I have the following problem with the engine in the 3,4 and 5th gear :
Above 3000 rpm it looks like the engine's rpm-limiter become active. I think this is a security system which becomes active when the computer detects a problem. Reaching the 3000 rpm causes also a flashing enginelight at the dashboard. I suspect a malfunctioning sensor, but I don't know which one...
Can anybody help me with this problem?

EDIT: the title is not correct: year 2009 has to be 2003

Thanks in advance,
Regards Hendrik (Netherlands)

Sounds odd, get the diagnostics checked mate.
Knowledge is often mistaken for intelligence. This is like mistaking a cup of milk for a cow.
