Car idles fine but when I give it gas it bogs down or looses horsepower, tach goes up but it wont idle high, also when I try to drive it it wont go. Just cleaned the throttle plate and checked the sensor that's by the air filter my next step is putting in new spark plugs

I have the same car. Had the same problem. It wouldn't go up hills either so I cleaned out the throttle bottle sensor it seemed to help a little but not much. So took it to transmission shop and he said I had a leak in my lines which caused to lose fluid and wasnt holding pressure. So had new hoses ran was fixed after that. Good luck hope that helped.
