WEIRD PROBLEM AFTER RESTARTING ENGINE

1988 Ford Escort

Car runs fine when first started and driven, but after turning off the engine and restarting, it will not go above 10-15mph, will not shift, and stutters/loses power. What would cause this? Already replaced Distributor, Distributor Cap, and Fuel Injector. Currently thinking it may be a problem with the MAP Sensor.

CEL on? Codes?

Check engine light.

Check engine light hasn't worked in years, never got around to replacing that yet

Does it act bad in neutral too or just under driving loads?

CODE 59 Trans. Hydraulic switch (THS 3/4) failed in open position (3.0L & 3.8L A/T only
CODE 61 ECT input too low
CODE 62 Trans. Hydraulic switch (THS 3/4) failed
CODE 63 TPS input too low
CODE 64 ACT (VAT) input too low
CODE 65 Electrical charging over voltage
CODE 66 MAF (VAF) input too low
CODE 67 Neutral drive switch--drive or accelerator on (engine off)
CODE 68 ITS open or AC on (engine-off test)
CODE 69 Trans. Hydraulic switch (THS 3/2) failed
CODE 72 No MAP change in ``goose test''
CODE 73 No TPS change in ``goose test''
CODE 74 Brake on/off switch always open or not activated during test

CODE 76 No MAF (VAF) change in ``goose test''
CODE 77 Operator did not do ``goose test''
CODE 79 Neutral drive switch (NDS) or A/C input signal interrupted
CODE 81 Thermactor air bypass (TAB) circuit fault
CODE 82 Thermactor air diverter (TAD) circuit fault

CODE 88 Throttle kicker circuit fault (5.0L)
CODE 89 Check Continuity Of VPWR Circuit
CODE 91 Right EGO always lean
CODE 92 Right EGO always rich
CODE 93 Right EGO cool down occurred
CODE 94 Right secondary air inoperative
CODE 95 Right air always upstream

CODE 97 RPM drop (with fuel lean) but right EGO rich
CODE 98 RPM drop (with fuel rich) but right EGO lean
CODE 99 ECA has not stored enough information to control idle speed (CFI engines only
** - On 1986 and later vehicles, this code represents RPM too high/low or throttle pedal was depressed during KOER Self-Test
*** - Low flow of unmetered air on 1987-88 1.9L EFI engine
