starts runs really roughit pops through the air box till you get the RPM's up and then it'll it'clear up you let off the throttle RPM's drop you give it gas it goes flat to actually get the car to move you have to pump super fast then spudder it gos

you have'nt stated vehicle model and year so this is going to have to be a general opinion , have the OBD codes read should point to the sensor/switch circuit that may be causing the problem , if vehicle is pre 1996 the obd is less sophisticated so will get less info but still worth doing ,from your description of the symptoms i'd suggest the timing could be a issue but quite where the cause lies would need further diagnosis , keep me posted if you wish

ACT sensor

turn on? (this word works ok for light bulbs) sorry !
cars dont turn on.
they crank, then start.
or crank start and stall.
is this car really so old it as a CARB? really?
i ask that because you mention sensors.
first post what you are driving, and then stated the symptoms. clearly
step by step is best.
engines run in stages from cold to warm then hot coolant.
each stage can fail.
