My 1989 Chrysler Conquest has poor acceleration from initial takeoff. You can hold the gas pedal to the floor, and it goes approx 30mph. What are the possible causes.

Do you
have the same problem?

Plugged catalytic converter, you need a tune-up, transmission isn't up-shifting, mouse chewed off a spark plug wire, vacuum leak, low fuel pressure, plugged air filter, etc.
