    Have a scan test performed, possible trans slipping.

    the throttle body is bad.its electronically controlled by a gear case within the throttle body where the wiring plug connects.the gears are stripped causing the throttle body not to open.to check this remove the air chamber mounted on top of the intake connected to the throttle body to expose the throttle body flapper that controlls air intake.turn the key on but do not start the engine.leave the wiring harness connected.with the key on press the accellerator and observe the flapper.if it does not open this will comfirm that the electronically controlled gear is malfunctioning.....replace the throttle body.ifound a used one for 100 dollars.new one is around 250 dollars.
