I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

Change the plugs and wires. also check the throttle position sensor or have it tested
It could be your MAF sensor. Mass air flow sensor that measures the air going into the intake. This could likely cause sluggish acceleration.
bad fuel, shorted mass air sensor, if the car is automatic might be low transmission oil
the crank position sensor can cause similar symptoms jeep is known for crank sensor problems
If you disconnect the TPS sensor, there would be hesitation on acceleration.
Check the temperature sensor.
The vehicle speed sensor is located in the transaxle. If the technician forgot to pop the sensor far enough back into the hole, the tranny fluid could potentially leak out. I know, because this happened to me when I replaced my Speed sensor.
When the TPS sensor is disconnected from the car in idle, there would be delayed acceleration.
That happened to my 1996 F-150. Ended up being my oxygen sensor. It would crank, but not start.
About a million things. Bad gas, plug wires, plugs, throttle position sensor, timing off, idle air control valve, clogged injectors, or maybe even the coil pack. The easiest to change and probably one of the best bets in the plugs and wires.
crank position sensor
It would if the battery voltage was lowered enough to cause it not to fire.
This will be caused by either worn wheel bearings or worn outer cv joints on the driveshaft which will eventually give out if not dealt with immediately
No, a bad crankshaft sensor would cause the car not to start and run.
Hi, If the problem is the O2 sensor, I was told that there are two, and if so do you replace both. Thanks, Gary
what would transmission not to shift in to overdrive
Several possibilities: Engine issues -Clogged fuel filter, Crank position sensor or cam position sensor going out intermittently (should throw a code), ignition coil breaking down(unlikely - would usually cause stumbling all the time), bad gas or water in the gas(unlikely),oxygen sensor (would cause one or two jerks during a typical acceleration, should throw a code). If it's the transmission, it may be "slipping" or have a clogged filter or valve body causing hard shifts.
A faulty crank sensor would cause no spark and no fuel.
In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)
There are several things that can cause your 1989 Honda Accord to stall on acceleration. The most common cause is a plugged or dirty air filter.
no need for map sensor enhancers on cars before 1996...
Perhaps an out of balance wheel. If this is the cause it will be worse at a certain speed.
Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).
Could be a bad Mass Air Flow sensor. About a three hundred dollar part. When The MAF sensor goes bad, the car will crawl when accelerating. The unit is in between the main fuel injection assembly and the air filter. The air filter hose feeds directly into the MAF sensor.
