Welcome to JustAnswer!!! My name is***** will be helping you with your question today...

Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Are you saying the engine won't rev past 2,500 RPM's? Have you dropped the exhaust to see if the converter is clogged? When did this start and what codes are setting?

Talk soon,

If I go really slow it changes gears fine.
It won't rev pass 2500rpm, feels like there's no power when I step on the gas.
It started 4 weeks ago.
I haven't ran it through the scanner yet.

Thanks for the reply!!

I would start by dropping the exhaust at the manifolds because honestly it sounds like your converter is clogged and if you have been hearing a rattle in your exhaust then it has come apart and is clogging the exhaust up.. Rev it up and see how much comes out tailpipe..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!
