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.

What would cause an object to have a smaller acceleration?

Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass.
