This sounds Like your TPS sensor ....(throttle position sensor) when you check this i would also check the throttle body for gunk and debris recommend a good clean even with the new sensor if the dirt is there it could contamanate the new sensor

If it isnt turning over you may just have a bad battery connection or ground.They may have taken your starter out when they rebuilt the trans and maybe a wire is loose or came off.

Push gas peddle and once i reach about half throttle the engine bogs down almost as if it is going to stall Its not the fuel pump or the filter when vehicle is in park and i push peddle to the floor the...


check your TPS throtel position sensor. and the vehicle has a rev limiter so it wont over rev n park and nutral. but thats the first thing i would check do to many TPS's wear out and can get dead spots in them.

Car stalls when accelerating


I would replace that tank (asap), so there can be a cap back on it.
With the cap off, the fuel system can't build up any pressure to hold the gas in the lines.
