This is caused buy a bad 02 sensor in exhaust system. or a bad convertor. but the check engine light will be on. also you may have a plugged up convertor. if the sensor fails it will send info to pcm that it is not reading it and therefore dump to much rich exhaust into convertor.

Engine looses power and tranny wont shift


Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any)
I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on...
Good luck

94 probe bogs out when u push the gas hard, goes ok when you push it easy


its either the idle air control motor or the throttle position sensor. but check the plugs to make sure that they weren't knocked loose and are plugged in all the way. with the IAC motor it will run ok for a little while then it will bog down and only run at idle. with the TPS it can vary in symptoms but will idle high at times
