Model is 2001
Exactly 1 year ago the problem happened 1 time.
When I drive 1 hour or above frequently with a minimum speed of 100 km, the engine is trying to take more 'load' and the rpm level go up from 2 to 4. Then I have drive less than a speed of 80 km but still the problem continues. Also, the 'service engine soon' light comes up! A year back I changed one of the ignition coil and now exactly after a year it shows the same problem! Kindly advise soon!!
