I thought will post a tread maybe one will have some ideas , before I tow it to dealer . Car starts up fine if I dont push gas pedal it idles at very low rpm's .Once I start applying throttle it struggles to get rpm's once they get to about 2500-3000 it starts taking gas fine as long as I keep pushing and releasing gas pedal , but if I try to keep rpms at same level lets say at 4000 0r 5000 ,it immediately drops down to couple hundred back fires couple time and stalls .
Any suggestions would be appreciated

What year?

Any codes? verify all intake connections after the MAF. Look for air leaks. Its likely someone left something loose. If you are running a cotton intake filter it may have oil that coated your MAF sensor. You can try removing it and gently spraying it with electronics cleaner.

Too bad youre all the way done in ATL or I would drop by and help you diagnose.

Good luck.
