Default sluggish drive home!!!!

well I went to the store and on my way back the car starting acting weird. It wasnt shifting at the right rpms, wasnt downshifting right, and took forever to get into overdrive. I got home and smelled aroung the car and it smelled funny almost as if the brakes were dragging. I know the emergency brake wasnt on but it felt like something was holding the car back and not letting it drive properly. any ideas? Thanks, Kory

Well, the MAF is certainly a good place to start. Unplug the MAF and take a spin. If the MAF is indeed the problem, then SOME of the power will be resored, but not fully. Fortunately, MAFs have dropped in price from nearly $400 to about $75.
