    Your going to need a professional to diagnose and $80/hr is not bad!

    i hot wire my speed sensor to the battery and whala the car runs and drives pretty well. except it jurks once in a while like it wants to grab and slow my car down but it runs for now. hopefully ill replace speed sensor and that will do the trick.
