Help!?! New owner new to forum. Trying to fix my son's car. Extreme loss of power on acceleration, rpms don't go up, tops out at 40 mph. Throws codes p0010, p0449, p0300. Check engine light and on the way home the brake light and beeping comes on Everytime you push accelerator. Is it cam position sensors or solenoids or cat? Or ? Don't have the money to replace unnecessary parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks very much. We just bought the car, for cheap thank heavens, and have not changed the oil yet but will do this first. So after that we should be checking wiring and cleaning actuator solenoids, then replacement if there is still a problem correct?

So an update .... We changed the oil, cleaned the camshaft actuator solenoids, and replaced the camshaft position sensors. Still no power but no engine codes, yet. Previous to this the rpms did not rev up past 2k and car bogged down with acceleration and would not go over 40. No the acceleration is the same except occasional RPM increase up to 3500 without speed increase. And to speed of 30. So I guess next is replacing actuators and then catalytic converter? Any help would be appreciated. The oil was pretty nasty and smelled heavily of gas.
