I was able to fix it. it would seem that it was in limp home mode I was able to reset it with some instructions.

Pedal feels hard after i cleaned the MAF??

While driving..the pedal starts to get hard I dunno why but it feels like there is some air somewhere. i dunno why this happens but it seems to be a regular thing. I took off that black hose on the top of the throttole body the other day could Air have gotten in there and is causing that hard feeling in the pedal?
