SLOW ACCELERATION

1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 107,000 miles

Slow to accelerate from a stopped position. Starts good for a few blocks then it is hard to accelerate from a stopped position. I have to keep pushing down on the gas pettle to get it to go from 2 rpms to 4 or 4 rpms then it will go back down to 2 rpms. Feels like somethin is jamed, clogged or stuck.

Have the transmission checked-sounds like its slipping

I had a transmission put in over two years ago. This problem started after I had the top manifold gasket replaced by a friend.

Could be one of the following below -check and test: Oxygen sensors.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position 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.
