take a look at the throttle body, and open it when you push on it only one part of the throttle should move if the metal piece that is on the outside turns with it then you are in limp home mode and your throttle body should be reset look it up on youtube and save yourself some money it's easy to do. gook luck, and remember to spray some silicone lubricant on it after you reset it that could be the cause of it going to limp home mode.
