Hello I bought this rodeo and it was cutting out in third and fourth gear or chokeing up im not shure what youd call it. Sometimes it also didnt want to start unless you floored it. We put all new plugs wires full filter and distributer and rotur on it and changed the oil. It starts now and gets more power but still messes up the faster you try to go.I was told its not missing. And it runs fine in park but when I try to drive up the road it just chokes or something. Its hard to explain. Basicly if it was a horse it bucks like crazy. Im desperate for help.I was told buy the people I bought it from it only need some carb work but then found out it is a throttle body not even carborated.I spent all my money on this car and its the only one I have I need it to run so I can go to work I have 6 kids to support and no running car. Please help

Check exhaust system, might be plugged. Remove oxyen sensor, then take for a drive and see if problem goes away. Make sure sensor removed is before catalytic converter.
