Answer

There are just too many different variables at play here. Could even turn out to be the PCM itself. Take it to a tune-up shop for diagnosis.

Answer

vacuum lines

Answer

It could be the vacuum lines, or it could just be that its running too hot, the average temp for a v8 92 camaro is about 220, but when u change the thermostat, and rewire the fan so that its always on, it cruises at about 180, and u pick up about 15hp making up for that slugish acceleration and keeping a smooth cruise. try swaping the maf sensor the wire filament usually have fibers from cheap wet air filters interfere with the fuel mixture signal sent ftom mas air flow sensor g

If velocity is steady and doesn't change, then there is 0 acceleration.

A steady increase in force will result in a steady acceleration, however if thesteady force stays the same then the speed will obviously remain the same.=====================================HONK ! Beulah the Buzzer is agitated and rankled by that answer, mainly becauseeach of its statements is individually and so thoroughly wrong.The formula that relates force and acceleration could hardly be any simpler . . .F = M ATo answer this question, let's first divide both sides by M . . . A = F/M .and there you have it. Acceleration is equal to (Force) divided by (Mass). As long as the force and the mass don't change, acceleration is a constant.In the words of the question, "steady force" causes a "steady acceleration".

WILD GUESS BUT WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CHANGED THE FUEL FILTER????? IF A FILTER IS GETTING CLOGGED IT WILL TAKE OFF OK BUT WHEN IT NEEDS A STEADY STREAM OF FUEL IT WILL HESITATE...........

Zero. Anything that moves at a steady velocity has no acceleration by definition, because acceleration is defined as rate of change in velocity.

check my answer Holding a steady speed.
