hey guys, maybe you can help me w/ this.

on the freeway today, i started having this problem with my acceleration capabilities. Basically, i'm putting the gas pedal to the FLOOR and i can't seem to get above 2500 RPM. It's like there's basically nothing there. Car still runs, but not like she used to. only 84k on her so i'm not sure what the problem is. Any ideas on what this could possibly be? :confused:

mass air flow sensor could be disconnected/loose. check connection. Without it the engine won't be able to rev past 3000 (neutral). no code from the ECM? Otherwise could be a faulty mass air sensor as well (vibration related).

Yep I had the same thing happen. I just unbolted the sensor. Wiped off the underside with a rag. Reinstalled it. Then reset the computer by disconneting the battery for a couple of minutes. Rehooked up the battery, and the car ran fine.
