Default Hesitation, throttle cutting

Hey guys, so Iíve been having an issue of no smooth pulling during acceleration as well as immediate low idle upon start up no matter what conditions, now itís almost cutting throttle like a mini redline at about 2.5k I think Iím not 100% sure cuz no tach gang but it cuts out, scares me to drive and doesnít get as good gas mileage as it used to. Unplugged the tps sensor didnít seem to do much and it still does it when unplugged as well Iíve already tried a mafs so Iím kinda clueless at this point

It's in limp mode. Pull codes. If it doesn't see the MAF it'll go into limp too.

Limp mode limits your rev range due to some fault detected that is crucial to the operation of the engine. Unplugging the GPS or MAF will set the vehicle into limp mode. Being a 96 it has OBD2 and should be able to lead you in the right direction.

You said it was cutting out at 2500RPM.



Either way, pull codes. That will often give you a while lot more info than asking what could be wrong on a forum.
