ACCELERATOR PROBLEMS

1996 Chevrolet Chevette • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 243,000 miles

When I put my foot down on the accelerator the car doesn't want to move so it's almost like it's out of gas at times. What could the problem possibly be.

Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
