Hi. Problem is a put-putting when idleing an a loss of power when driving. Changed plugs an wires, an will change fuel filter again. At higher speeds an rpms it will sometimes take off like a turbo just kicked in!( It has no turbo). It will drive like that for a little while before going back to a loss of power. Air filter is good too. What is the problem? Please help.

Are you getting a check engine light? If we can find a code it will help lead us in the right direction. Just based on the info you have given though it sounds like the TPS may be out of range. Let me know about the light and or codes and we will try to get you going. My first choice would have been a tune up but since that has already been taken care of I think it may be sensor related.
Good Luck.
