    No computer resetting needed.

    If the RPM goes up, and you have no power, I am thinking of transmission issues. Is this an automatic transmission powered vehicle?

    If you are saying it's like it's not getting enough gas, have you checked fuel pressure?

    And lastly - sometimes a restricted exhaust (catalytic converter) can cause power issues. Another area to check.
