Ok so I have a 2002 Camaro 3.8 and these are symptoms im having and shat ive done to car

Car runs like total **** , huge power loss , coolant fans stay on from start up , coolant temp guage is dead which is leaving the check engine light on! :banghead:

-idles stays stuck at 1500 for a few seconds ( 10- 15s ) after im fully stopped

- im getting engine light (code p0128) shows 2 times

- when in gear car sputters like its running out of gas unless I turn a/c on then it will stay on , will idle a lil better in neutral or park

(Used to throw MAF code but I no longer get it with new one or old one)

Things ive done recently
- plenum gasket
- oil
-water pump
-coolant elbows (aluminum)

What ya guys think ? :what:

So far people are giving me 3 major things
