Hi there if you have engine response but lack power, start with checking the trans oil condition & level, start here.

It was checked a month ago I believe I have a vacum leak because my ac is weak and is coming out of the bottom instead of vents. Check engine light came on today and its p0133. Not sure if thats causin the acceleration but doesnt a vacum leak give me less power and acceleration? Ty

Hi there,

A vacuum leak may be your problem. Check around the inlet manifold as they did have a problem with sucking in gaskets.
