Following on from my previous post about the temporary (at least it was ok yesterday???) kompressor problems, whilst trying to see where the charge air pipe is located I decided to rev the car up. Anyway what the engine does when it reaches around 3500rpm it starts to cut off and the engine starts to missfire almost as if there is a cut off ? It does drive ok though and only does this when the car is in neutral ???
Is this normal or has the engine now developed another fault ???
Many Thanks for all your help and comments :)
Regards
Ian

I believe it is limited when in neutral (4,000 rpm?) to prevent damage.
