Topic: engine failure on my 2zz :-(

Dudes,

On Saturday my xrsi failed me. Was chasin a gti and all of a sudden i lost power...car wud not rev higher than 3000rpm, misfure, and rumble on idle.

Theres no knock sound wen u rev so its not a bearing knock. Seems like issue in the head.
What u guys tink?

mine was not revving higher than 3000rpm and the problem was a MAF sensor. If the is engine light on, try replacing MAF sensor.
