1996 Geo Metro

Engine Performance problem
1996 Geo Metro 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 118, 00 miles

Metro starts fine, idles slightly rough, hesitates a few seconds on initial throttle, after that it seems to have to catch up with the amount of throttle that you give it. This may take several seconds. These symptoms occur on flat roads, however, on even a small incline I can floor it and only get to 5 MPH.
I have replaced plugs & wires, fuel filter, transmission filter, checked cap & rotor. SES light not on.
