Sounds like it to me. Remove the O2 sensor and run like that to see if you get some power back. If you do you are on th right track.

3: bad fueling (100's pages of text missing here,,,, take a class?)
4: EGR stuck open.
5: CAT melted (cat/conv ) (really this is #1, kills engine cant pump air)

Transmission


A/T or M/T (auto or stick ,we dont know)
n moving in drive, reverse or Low or 1? or 2? (me too lazy to look what tranny you have)
it can be 2 things
1: lack of engine power
2: bad clutch or transmission

who do we tell? easy
you step on gas , RPM goes way high and MPH dont. (slips)
tranny slip.
you step on gas, RPM tracks with MPH, good ,
you then do the 5second max. tranny stall test in every car FSM made. and see the stall speed, with brakes hard set.
too high is tranny slip
way to low, engine power POOR.

alldata.com has all this on tranny. stall speed.
the FSM turn to on car A/T service, see STALL test.
bingo.
or youtube the vast number of videos on topic, stall.


wont move at all ,can be :
brake drag (passes stall test)
but first , the tests are, for bad engine or trans,
pick the one it is , state so, and we can go much farther.

Lack of power with high rpm


Transmission is slipping. Check fluids and filter and service.

Tranny problems will run for short time after startup then stop moving ,motor will still run but car wont move let it sit for some time and then it will move again


first of all, check condition of tranny fluid. if it is brown or smells burnt the clutch in tranny are slipping. if the fluid is ok and at normal on stick. then change the fluid and tranny filter. this may help. have a good one !! but if it still slips, tranny is in need of repair or replaced.

1999 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN SLIPPING


I DON'T WANT TO GIVE YOU FALSE HOPE, YOU CAN TRY IT, BUT MY 95 CARAVAN DID THAT SAME THING, AND ONE DAY WHILE IN TOWN IT JUST STOPPED. FIRST INSPECT THE EXTERIOR OF THE TRANSMISSION, CHECK THOROUGHLY INCLUDING THE DIFFERENTIAL MINE WAS SPLIT SO I GOT LUCKY AND ONE WAS GIVEN TO ME SO PLEASE CHECK IT OUT. ALSO SMELL THE TRANSMISSION FLUID. BE SURE TO SMELL FRESH FLUID SO YOU GET AN IDEA OF HOW THE FLUID SMELLS. IF IT IS DARK LIKE DINGY AND SMELLS COOKED THEN MY FRIEND IT IS TIME FOR A NEW ONE

Its complety losing power and it sounds crazy i think its a sensor or mabye a clogged cat/???/


Have someone turn off the engine while you listen to the tail pipe. The exhaust should stop immediately when the engine is tutned off. If you hear a wheezing, smell a sulpher odor or feel exhaust still coming out, The conv is defective. Yes, a restricted conv will cause loss of power.good luck

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.
