you could check out the fuel injectors to male sure they are not clogged or geta fuel injector cleaner, if that doesn't help then check the spark plugs and timing. also a bad catalytic converter might be to blame.

One reason a 1995 Honda Civic might sputter and cough while accelerating during normal driving is because of a bad coil. Another reason could be a bad fuel pump or fuel filter. Still another reason could be a bad oxygen sensor.

If a 1989 Suburban hesitates when accelerating from 45 miles per hour, the carburetor might need cleaned. A clogging can cause surging and hesitation.

your car might be weak on accelerating because it isn't firing on all cylinders.

Since acceleration involves a change in velocity, and object might be accelerating even though its speed is constant.
