check your oil level. if it is low add some. your oil pressure sensor may be faulty, or you could have clogged oil passages. if you change your own oil, put some lestiol in your engine just before you do your next oil change. drive the car for about 5 miles, then come home and change the oil. htis might fix your problem.

What would make a non turbo erratic on acceleration?

There are many variables that can make any engine "erratic" on acceleration. These can range from poor quality/contaminated fuel, defective spark plug wires, to a defective sensor etc. Best advice is to get a diagnostic reading (off the ECU) to zone in on the problem. This should save time & money in the long run, instead of swapping parts "on a hunch" & hoping to catch the problem.
