Help!! I just changed my air filter in my 05 TSX, no problems up until now! I tried to drive my car after we changed the filter and both the check engine and VSA lights are on, my car is sputtering and won't accelerate past 20mph! The transmission is also difficult to move! My POOR BABY!!!

I read on other forums it could be the IAT sensor, has anybody had this problem?? If so, can you give me some guidance before the dealer charges me an arm and a leg? and another leg???

Thanks so much for any help!!jjjjjjjj8

How many miles does your car have?? It may possibly be your TPS(Throttle positioning sensor) which is located in the throttle body. It sucks because if it does happen to be that, the whole throttle body would have to be replaced. If you can get to a nearby autozone, their scanner should give you the proper codes so you can check.
Start with the simple things, if you disconnected anything prior to changing the filter, double check your work.
