BX 16V rev limited to 4000 rpm

Post by jcq2 »


My 1988 BX 16 Valve does not rev beyond 4000 rpm.

Below 4000 rpm it revs normally but there is a certain lack of power highly noticeable when going uphill.

Can anyone help ?

IIRC this very subject was covered very recently on Luke's site

Alas my memory is crap and I've had several bottles of beer so a few more grey cells have snuffed it but if you PM toddman or log on to the site the answer I'm sure is there!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
