Sounds like a transmission issue, have the car scanned for ant transmission related codes. Most transmission shops will check to make sure your transmission is working 100% free of charge. With what you have described, almost sounds like you don't have 1st or 4th gear and your transmission is running on 2nd and 3rd gear. Easy fix if the 1st-4th solenoid needs to be replaced, or the wire harness has gone bad. Start with getting your car scanned and let me know if your transmission is starting on 2nd. Good luck

SOURCE: slow acceleration

Why would you expect any fluids to help ?

Have you changed the fuel & air filter,spark plugs,
cleaned the maf sensor,changed the two front O2
sensors & checked fuel pressure?

When that is done,check for codes,then vacuum
leaks

If it is over ten years old, the exhaust converter may
be blocked

Last check for cylinder misfires as those ignition
coils fail a lot & several at once

Don't over look the egr valve

?acceleration sluggish when cold?


any codes like air temp sensor, MAP or o2 sensors. A local auto parts place should be able to read the live data stream for you at no cost. Could just need an intake clean. I have seen a bad coil here and there(when wet). Great car.

SLUGGISH ACCELERATION


how many miles does it have? could be fuel filter is clogged (change) needs new spark plugs, is there a check engine light on? if yes take to a chain auto parts store they usually test for free, does engine race and car goes slow, could be transmission needs new filter/fluid or needs repair. Standard transmission, clutch is worn out, starting point for you with so little information to work with

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...


I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

I suggest the valve timing is out just a little bit. The engine will still run, but it WILL be sluggish!
