I know when people go hook thier car up to a dyno the rpm's get revved up pretty high. If I rev my duratec up it gets to around 4000 rpm and starts to feel like it is coughing or choking. It doesnt do it when I am driving, just when I am sitting in park. Tonight is the first time I have done it so I didnt know about it until a little while ago. Anything I can check like air filters or somewhere else?

:homer:

All automatic Taurii have two rev limiters. One in the forward gears, which varies depending on which motor/ options you have, and one in park/neutral. The P/N rev limiter is 4000RPM, which is what you were experiencing.
