Default Car doesnt seem rite??????

So at first car **** the bed bad. Top speed of like 25 mph. Then graduallly over fifty miles it got better n was running perfect. Drove 200 plus miles n no codes yet but its got no balls. I never owned a car this big with a 6 banger but i think it shud be lil better. Its dohc motor.Today on a long gradual hill on highway it was stuck at 65 mph. No matter what i did it wouldnt even go 66. My gas milage seems little bad then again maybe its just me. I drive 30 miles to work n 27 miles of it is highway. Two times i ran a tank n im getting lil less then 20 mpg. Def not gettn 20. No skips n runs very smooth

Sort of hard to understand what's going on but I think you are driving the car in D (Drive) rather than OD (Over Drive), which is probably why you can't go faster than 65. Also, your parking brake may be on.

I have a shop that charges $40 labor+ the cat. He can get good spec cats for $350. Just the price of the game. Better than screwing the rest of it up~~
