Sounds like a converter issue.. something is causing your converter to let go.. your pcm has a module and driver for it. Is there an engine light on? Possibly for a coolant temp sensor or tps sensor?

I do have engine light on i had it checked they said egr

Ill have it checked again. It's a really good car
