ENGINE RACING

Nissan Altima

I have a 1995 Nissan Altima GXE 5-speed, just turned over 91,000 miles. (I'm a single grandmother, living alone and this is my only means of transportation, so I hope you can help me.)
My problems is with acceleration. When I step on the gas, the car just creeps along. If I increase the pressure on the gas peddle, the engine races, but the car barely moves. Until the last few weeks, it only happened every now and then, would go back to normal for a few days, but now it runs like this all the time.
thanx for any direction in which you can point me!

You said the car is a 5 speed so I am guessing that it is a manual transmission. From what you have told me it sounds like the clutch is going and needs to be replaced. My advice to you would be to ask around for a reputable mechanic and take your car in to be serviced. Good Luck : )
