Will the vehicle will not rev up in neutral ?

Are you saying this is a manual transmission?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No the vehicle will not rev up, if I hold down the accelator the rev increases slowly but very slightly

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX accelerator is pressed does it feel it's bogging and sputtering or like it doesn't detect the accelerator at all?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It feels like it dosnt detect the accelerator at all. There is a switch on the dash to increase the engine revs and it works ok.

Ok, this indicates a faulty APP sensor. This sensor is part of the gas pedal assembly and is replaced as a complete unit.

Fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.
