There are several possibilities. THe top three are TPS (throttle positioning sensor), EGR (ehaust gas recirculation) valve, or a bad CAT (catylitic Converter) causing back pressure on the engine. Disconnect the exhaust at the manifold and see if there is a difference.

I have tried the catylitic converter and that wasn't it. I scaned the engine and no codes come up on the computer. Will try the tps and egr next and let you know what happens. Thanks

It's a 4 cylinder. If you want fast, buy fast.

I had the same problem, had the vehicle into several mechanics, we replaced several parts like you, no luck. Know what it turned out to be? I went out and looked under the hood at night in the dark, and on close inspection saw a tiny blue spark jumping from a CHEAP SPARK PLUG WIRE BOOT to engine block. $25 for a decent set of wires fixed it.

Help, I was coming home from work tonight, truck started right up. I drove 2 miles with no problems, went to make a right turn and the engine died. It would not restart and battery, check gauges lite was on, but all lights were really dim. It is unusually cold here, it was really late, police came , had no jumper cables so I parked it and they gave me a ride home. I just want to make sure I try to cover all bases when I go back in the morning.
