Default Taurus won't go over 4K RPM

When in park or neutral, if I rev it it won't go over 4K RPM. It will start studdering and not pass it. I haven't had a chance to pass 4K RPM while driving yet, I will try as soon as possible. I want to know if this is a problem or will it simply not pass 4K RPM when in neutral or park? Thank you

^^^^^ Yup, rev limiter is set around 4K in park and neutral to keep people from doing stupid stuff like free reving the engine to the red line.

Well I really don't think 4K RPM is too much, obviously not every time I accelerate but once in a while it's good to let the engine exercise

4k on the engine will be fine...it's when you consistantly hit 7k that causes issues....lol

The car feels really solid when accelerating and shifting at 6K, but once you lt go and hit the brake I always feel like i'm really damaging the engine because it grunts
