Question Rev limiter- '93 SC2 DOHC, manual trans


HELP....we just completed an engine/trans swap in a 1993 SC2-DOHC 5 speed manual. Now the 4000 RPM rev limiter which was never noticed before, is kicking in regardless of whether the engine is in gear or neutral, standing still or driving. It kicks in in all gears, regardless of vehicle speed.
FYI, the parking brake has been removed, and there is nothing connected to the e-brake connector wire. We read on the forum that the parking brake might cause the rev limiter to initalize.

We suspect the the VSS or it's connector may be causing it as the trans is different and the connector looks a little sketchy.
This car is used for racing and the instrument cluuster has been removed, so we can't see the speedo or MIL.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The answers on Saturn forum weren't good enough?

Thumbs up

They were excellent answers. I figured the different forums have different members and technical expertise. So I posted same question on three Saturn Forums.

Heya,

Wow that was grouchy for goalie!

We're both over here but this forum doesn't have much action right now so we hang at saturnforum.

I do not frequent saturnfans for the reasons I discussed at saturnforum -- and -- for the record -- I am NOT using any information other than manuals and my brain to try to help you solve your issue. I will be very interested to see how they dissected this versus my approach.

There's 5 or 6 great dudes there so it's likely they'll reach the finish line with you before me -- but I'm a tryin'......
