My theory is that when Barry hits Mach 2, he can briefly accelerate to lightspeed in order to either enter the Speed Force or Time Travel. We do know that Reverse Flash was faster than Barry but never time warped without help from Barry. We also know that Zoom is also 3 to 4 times faster than Barry but also doesn't time warp. So, your absolutely right that something else must be going on in order for Barry to time warp as he does. And that is where my theory comes in.

The reason why I believe Barry briefly achieves lightspeed in order to time warp or enter the speed force is simple: In order to beat Zoom or Reverse Flash, Barry would need to be faster than them but if he time warps or enters the speed force every time he hits Mach 2, then he can never be faster than them. He will always be stuck at a top speed of Mach 2. That is why my theory makes perfect sense.

I'll give you an example.

The Delorean time machine in Back to the Future had to reach a speed of 88 mph then it can travel back in time. But notice that whenever the Delorean travels back in time, two fire trails are left behind, almost as if the tires spun so fast that the Delorean briefly accelerated to lightspeed to achieve time travel. This is never fully explained in the movie as far as I can remember, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me.

The same principle can be applied here to how Barry achieves Time Travel.

The mechanism for cracking into Time has to be more than just hitting a lowly Mach-2 though, you point to the Back to the Future films but the actual mechanism that allowed travel was the Flux-Capacitor, that was the core of the Professor's machine, and the Dolorean was the delivery mechanism as it were.
The obvious thing to explain how The Flash is doing it would be to refer to his comicbook science and explain how he internally alters both his speed and his vibratory rate to access time-travel, but conceptualising this on the screen, in an easy to digest manner, may be difficult to do. I do get the feeling we must be missing something here as surely even the writers and producers realise the nonsense of suggesting a low speed of Mach-2 is enough to crack into time itself and travel along it is nonsense. I would be tempted to say that the Mach-2 reference is an error, after all Barry has been able to see a Lightning Bolt and outrace it! But it seems to be the case that no one at the Flash office can agree on just how fast The Flash is right now...
