You think the ecm would cause the car to lose all power and feel like its in neutral?
Thanks

It is possible. How is the maintenance history? If the ecm is pulling the timing due to a stretched timing belt, it could feel similar. We wont know until we get more info. Start with the basics, fuel, ignition and timing. Check these thee first. Then check your wire harnesses for broken wires or fraying. Couldnt hurt to look at the electrical connections on the transmission. ECM will most likely need capacitors, but this is usually the last thing that is checked.

I want to thank everyone for all the help. Problem resolved. I took all the advice ecm was fine. It ended up being the tranny. I just put a used one with supposedly 50k lol I doubt it but it runs like a champ now.

Thanks for all the help!
