I got a 2007 dodge ram 1500 standard, when im parked and I accelerate my truck doesnt go over 2500 rpm , reach the 2500 and starts acting like its cutting the gas , but on the freeway I can accelerate ok , I can put it on neutral and accelerate and the rpm can go all the way up , im wonder its that normal or no

  • So this odd hesitation only happens when the truck's transmission is in park? If you're sitting still in neutral there's no problem?

  • Well the truck is standard , im not moving the truck is in neutral and if I accelerate doesnt go over 2500 rpm , ani does that only when im completly stopped or im moving no more than 20 m/h

This is completely normal and is a safety feature. When the car is parked, the ECU will limit the rpm. It is so that the engine is not worn out unnecessarily.
