My EPC light chech engine light and waring light all came on and my car won't accelerate. I let go of the brake and it only goes about 10mph. I just got a tune up and replaced one of the airflow hoses. Got a new brake light switch in Jan. 09. My friend said i new a new air flow controller? I have no idea whats wrong with it.
What you can do is look at the airflow hoses and see if they are loose or disconnected. If they are OK, then I would take it back to the shop that just performed the work and have them check it out. The check Engine Light is on, so that means there are diagnostic trouble codes stored that will help to find the problem.
Good Luck, let us know what you find out!
