My 1994 Tempo is very sluggish on acceleration from a dead stop. Matting the pedal does nothing and all of a sudden it downshifts to about 5000 rpm, very scary. I am also starting to hear a backfire from under the car. Attempted to merge onto highway the other night and car would not go over 90 KMH, I had the pedal matted and all of a sudden it was like it went from DRIVE to 1st, scared the crap out of me. Any ideas on the sluggish acceleration?
have the same problem?
