I experienced poor acceleration in my '95 Chevy Blazer, which eventually became so severe that when accelerating, the engine nearly stalled.It turned out that my catalytic converter was disintegrating, and choking off the exhaust so severely that the backpressure was causing engine retardation. I took the vehicle to a muffler shop, where they performed a backpressure test on the exhaust to diagnose the problem. After replacing the catalytic converter, the problem was corrected.

Depends on the problem. If you want to fix the problem, then find the solution and use the solution to fix it.

You probably have a check engine light on so, start with having the ECM scanned for codes. The codes will help you determine the cause of the idling problem. It could be as simple as a vacuum leak. Your local auto parts store can help you with reading the codes at no cost.

Replacing the fuel filter may fix the problem. Also check the air filter and replace if necessary.

Give a try to Seafoam, you can get in AutoZone (~$10). Instructions are on the bottle.

No. Oil circulation has nothing to do with acceleration. A fuel filter change on the other hand may help. Things that cause poor acceleration include clogged fuel filter, clogged air filter, need of a tune up, some electrical problems or a clogged catilytic convertor.

Not sure what a hard code 8 means for a Festiva, but you can probably find a Haynes or Chilton Manual at your local library and get some understanding of the problem - whether you try to fix it yourself or have a mechanic fix the problem. I had a similar problem with a 1987 Cavalier and it turned out to be a bad catalytic converter. - Good luck. have you tried changing the spark plugs?
