hmmm, I'm just making guesses, but the IAC (idle air controller) motor could be bad. also check the EGR valve. It's directly below the IAC on the front, driver's corner of the engine. try disconnecting the vacuum hose leading up to the top of it and plug it with something.

those are just guesses at this point, but hopefully they help. good luck!

Say that again?
Thanks, Matt
I changed the mufffler. All broken up inside. as soon as car is warmed up it loses power . cant get it over 25. funny thing happened and it maybe means something to you. I shifted into neutral and revved it to 5000 for a few seconds and when I put it in drive it ran perfect . Does that point to AIC or what else?

My mechanic thinks maybe MAS or some sensor. its probably running too rich after it warms up and when revved up it triggers the sensor to right itself.
