Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

What P codes are setting in the ECM? It's likely a bad bellcrank or TPS which is why it won't rev over 1,500.. But if you will reply back with the P codes I will be able to better direct you to a repair to get it fixed..

Keep me posted,

The TPS has already been changed. The pickup pump has been changed and the fuel filter. I do not feel like you read my email and the only thing your reply said was you need codes. If I am going to take to shop to get codes I really did not need to pay you , they can tell me what they think. I used this site before and it was right on the money and fixed the problem. I feel like I was charged for nothing this time. Please credit my card.

This is not a guessing matter since you have replaced many parts to no avail.. In order to get you fixed I will need to know what codes the ECM has.. You can read them yourself with a codereader.. When you get the codes post them here..
