Hello Iím new here have a couple of question!

Daughter drove car for a year no problems one day forgets to replace gas cap! Car wonít go over 5 mph took car to shop was told cats were bad replaced both front cats still same problem wonít go over 5 mph! Unplugged MAF car runs great but starts in high gear an wonít go over 60mph. Replaced MAF plugged back in wonít go over 5mph again! Unplugged MAF car runs great but wonít go over 60 mph still scratching my head was then told there are 3 cats on this car does this seem like a cat problem if I unplug the MAF an car drives?

Read codes. If this is a TPPS (aka APPS) problem, you can disassemble the sensor and re-solder all joints on the white PCB to the brass plug blades. Mine works fine for 3 years after doing that.
