Won't rev past 3000 rpms

(1990 Ford Ranger)
in Everett, WA on November 10, 2010
I can't get my truck to go over 3000 rpms even in neutral. Its almost like the rev limiter is set to 3000. Any ideas? Suggestions?

there is no rev limiter. you need to find out why. it could be a clogged converter, low fuel pressure, timing or low compression. take it to a shop and have them help you.
