Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. If the engine is misfiring and you cleaned the air sensor, I think you mean Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor, then the problem lies within the sensor. Replace the MAF and recheck for the conditions that you are having. The rpm's won't go above 3,000 for the computer has the engine in limp mode. For the computer to go into limp mode, a sensor has tripped or failed. If you need further assistance diagnosing your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to assess your misfire condition.
