No imediate DTCs. Eventualy throws Trans Control Module requested MIL after several start/run cycles. Pending DTC: VSS A circuit low voltage. Engine will not accelerate and eventually dies if the throttle is depressed and held. Rough idle. Rolling engine with throttle depressed, but does not roll at idle. MAF checks good with scanner. No vacuum leaks found. Fuel pressure is good and steady. Engine starts imediatley. CPS replaced 6 months ago. Thanks!

The catalytic converter is clogged. Vacuum read 5-7hg at idle. I disconnected the exhaust at the manifold and the engine ran fine. Thanks for the timely and accurate reply!
