    Unhappy car wont rev

    had a problem sat night car wouldnt start had 2 different light s on the dash one was an oil can with a spanner through it, the other was a car with a spanner through it.

    checked oil and it was low but ok topped up any way just to be safe

    car would turn over but not fire.


    went back to it yesterday got it started but wont rev, cut out like a limiter at 3-4 k revs

    any ideas peeps, or anyone with a fault code reader near mid wales that can help out.

    If you can get it started firstly check there is exhaust gases coming out the tail pipe. If not may be the cat that is blocked. You should do the pedal test and see what codes are stored.
