    I have a 100k 96 grand am. I love her, but when I am trying to accelerate (I dont think the problem only comes up from stopped) I feel a lack of power. I can feel and see the enigine is revving high for a good 1-3 seconds before shifting. This problem shows up inconsistently. Thanks!

Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level.
