My truck won't go over 98 mph but the speedometer tops out at 120 but the gauge won't go faster than 98. How do I make it to where my speed reaches at 120 again?
It is probably the governor kicking in, it is programmed to do this. You will not reach 120mph
My Ford will top out at about 100 but the issue is the limiter. I have heard that performance programmers can eliminate the limiter.
Without the limiter you would likely be able to top a hundred but I doubt you would reach 120. Almost all cars have speedos that have a higher range than what the car will actually do. A 120 mph speedometer means 60 is at the top center which is probably why Ford used that range.
We had an '11 Ford Focus delivery car that when you hit 80 MPH it would chime and a message would pop up on the dash "You have reached the maximum speed of this vehicle". HTH -Jim
My Corolla speedometer goes to 110 and I have had it up to 100 and it was tacking at 6100 rpm. But I only ever did that one time on a back road that nobody would have gotten killed but me. And I have 130mph rated tires or I would never have tried to see what it would do. The VVTi works, that's for sure
120MPH in a stock F150 on street tires... lawd help us.
Your truck may have a limiter built into it. My 2010 f-150 does. I could override it as per the owner's manual, But I never drive at 80+ anyway; and surely don't want anyone I happen to lend the truck to do so either.
