If I'm at a stand still on the brake, my car sometimes doesn't want to move when I get on the gas. It stalls and takes a while to pick up speed. Then the gear doesnt change. What could that possibly be?

Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing? I would suggest checking for trouble codes for a start.

Sounds like what my car does but my check engine light comes on from time to time and sometimes it acts up and sometimes not. I have stick shift but in first gear it's got good power but once I shift into second gear or higher it bogs and takes a whole to get up to speed before I can shift again and when I go up slight inclines the power drops drastically. The codes for mine are for the tps(throttle position sensor) and gas pedal position sensor. Not sure if your car has the same issue?
