Driving down the freeway @ 70MPH. Car bucks (split second loss of power), wont accelerate unless at really high RPM. Pull off freeway, dumping fuel (LOTS of black smoke out the tailpipe). Car seems to accelerate normally until 35MPH, wont upshift. Once at ~35MPH sounds like the car is missing.
Connected Innova OBD I scanner under the hood, can't pull any codes. Can read stored (memory) codes however.
PS: Stored codes were EGR, and O2 codes.
PPS: I'm a mechanic that was injured at work. Have been out of work since May '11. Have no access to schematics. This is my only transportation for me and my three small children (5, 3 and 2). Please help!
