Car has poor acceleration. Tends to bog down when I accelerate and you can feel it sputtering. New fuel. Pump, filter, and fuel lines. Freeway driving is pretty good until I accelerate faster. Slight pinging. In the engine when sitting in park. Car does not have a turbo. Not included on this mode

Have the back pressure checked for cat converter. It may be clogged not allowing the engine to breathe

Should I take it into a Saab mechanic to check it out? I noticed there is a lot of exhaust coming out at start up. Could be more noticeable because its cold over here? Coolent levels are good.
