Won’t go over 2rpm

My 2006 Nissan Altima won’t accelerate over 2RPM, when it goes above that it starts jerking, almost feels like it’s choking. I just changed the Camshaft Sensor because it wouldn’t accelerate when I pressed the gas pedal at all. It now goes, but only until it reaches about 21/2 Rpms. It has a new MAF sensor and just replaced the throttle body sensor. Please help I don’t know what else it could be. I’ve recently learned about something called fail safe mode? Could that be my problem? If so, how do I fix that??

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try researching on nissan forums...if you have cleared the codes and gone through the possible usual culprits i suspect it could be a clogged catalytic converter...read this link....

It sounds like your car is in "limp" mode...that is to say it will drive but not accelerate nor go above 30 mph.

This is to protect the engine from further damage....long enough for you to get to a garage.You could try buying a OBD reset plug that clears all the fault codes and see if it runs properly or returns to limp mode.If it does then you need to have the codes read by a garage to pinpoint the problem...before it causes even more problems.Usually sensors are to blame , lambda...electronic throttles...intermittent connections.

I had a ford maverick do this and eventually discovered the throttle was electronic and a few hard blips on the throttle linkage with the engine switched off freed the problem and the limp mode disappeared.
