car kicks boggs almost dies above 4k rpms

I drive an 1995 eclipse gs 5 speed and i just replaced a power steering belt and it blew out i got gas befor the power steering belt came off and it was sputtering a little bit then i gave it to her and the belt shot off and now it idles perfectly but after 4k rpms it cuts power and just studders/bogs like it wants to die. I cleaned my idle screw and maf a few weeks ago. I have new spark plugs and wires. Also had a headgasket down a few months ago.

You might want to proof read that again and rewrite it. It is very hard to make out what you are asking.

Re: car kicks boggs almost dies above 4k rpms

Your cutout is most likely due to boost leaks, or timing/electrical problems. Fix the belt, ensure you have the right plugs (NGK BPR6ES, gapped at .028-.032), and ensure you have ZERO boost leaks. Then, come back.

Re: car kicks boggs almost dies above 4k rpms

My car is non turboed, when i get to 4500rpms it shoots back down to 4000 and kicks/boggs then it goes to 5000. Plugs are gaped right, and i checked my timing i put it in a high gear and let it bog down its all seems fine no kicks or anything. Its only when i drive fast or put the pedal all the way down the car kicks/boggs.

Check the fuel filter, and normal maintenance stuff? Possibly a vacuum leak?

Heh, I missed the "GS" in the post. Reading fail on my part.

Follow your fuel line from the fuel rail to the firewall to find out where the fuel filter is.

Re: car kicks boggs almost dies above 4k rpms

Ok so i can casually drive my car to high rpms with no kicks or noises but if i slightly move my foot more to the gas it kicks and rpms are off the charts and i stoped at a stop sign and my car was stuck on 4k with clutch in then i poped it into N and it still didt go down till i drove away, this is just getting irratating
