1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL Q&A

1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL Question: what would cause a car to sputter and have no acceleration/power.

here's everything I can eliminate right off the back: Spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, solenoid, bank2 sensor2 02 sensor, spark plugs, and ignition coils. The check engine was on before I changed all of this and is now off, but still absolutely no difference in performance. it turns on good, when I put it in drive and hit the gas it barely moves until I push it all the way down. theres slight knocking in the engine but it comes and goes, I tested the pressure also and its good, so the engine still has power. what would it be!!? -
Answer 1
Check the MAF sensor and see if there is any, fuzz or if it's dirty on the wires inside. -

If your wanting to work on your car, I would suggest you purchase a car repair manual for your car first, so that you can read some of the do's and don'ts of repairing your car. The wire sensors inside of the MAF not the wires to it. It's in the line from the breather to the intake manifold. -
