Try to take off it physically cannot. It is like it is having a hard time. When I put in park it revs up to four rpm then holds for like two seconds and goes back to normal. Sometimes when I am start to drive it sputters. Like, when I take off.
Do you

Something like that should have triggered the check engine light on already. Can you have the codes pulled and posted on here to see if we can get an idea as to what is going on?

Yes the first thing they will check is that you have no vacuum leaks. If all is good then you will need the mass air flow sensor. That part is not cheap so hopefully it is just a vacuum leak.
