if the car will only rev to about 2500 rpm, then starts cutting out, like fuel cut, AND tcs off/tcs lites up on the dash, AND ce lite is illuminated, most likely codes will be 1525/26 and 1540. if so, then the abv vacuum or vent circuit/solenoids are bad, or both. there is about 21 feet of vacuum line on this car, and 10(maybe 12? i forget) solenoids controlling them. the abv is controlled by 2 solenoids, and if there is a leak in the vacuum lines, or a broke tee, or a bad solenoid, the pcm will put the car in "limp home" mode-tcs off/tcs lites up on the dash, and the car will not go above about 2500rpm
