Start with your plugs and fuel pressure.

Some one told me maybe the mass air flow sensor are something with the throttle body sensor but not sure i just know it ideals rough and barley will move cause it booges down when you hit the gas pedal


Catalytic converter might be clogged. Scan for codes first
