Sounds like the computer is going into limp in mode, when a computer detects a major failure in the engine control system it goes into this mode to prevent too much damage to the control systems, it allows you to drive the vehicle to a repair shop at a greatly reduced power. So take it to a shop you trust and find out what the problem is.

Took it to a shop but and checked for codes but nothing came up

What the car is at now you can't even drive it limp mode gives you at least some power but mine their is nothing


Did they use a "live data" scanner? that is the only way they are going to find the problems.

Yeah still nothing, got a new throttle body, wheel speed sensor and accelerator peddle sensor
