Make sure you don't have a clean air filter. It might be short on air intake.

SOURCE: When I try to accelerate my car has no power!

There could be a couple of reasons. Yes a tune up would be nice. But my not fix the problem. If you are not losing acceleration on straight away but on hill, then it could be the torqe converter. Also have your MASS airflow sensor checked and air filter.

Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Get a fuel gauge and look for a port on the fuel rail for a port that looks like the valve on the tire. Screw it in and crank the car. You will have to call the part store to find out what pressure it is supposed to be. If there is low or eratic pressure the its the filter or pump

Emergency brake pedal stuck won't release, there is no release pull, the pedal is push down and push down again to release won't go down any farther to release! stuck on the side of the road right now

Start the vehicle, and while pushing down on the break put the vehicle in reverse and gently use accelerator to go back an inch or four. If that doesn't work continue to rock the car back and forth until the ebrake cuts loose

My car wont start HELP

if we can't trust mechanics, then "there will be no old cars."
(imagine, that, only new cars run,,, never old......imagine that)
the car is old, 23 years old.
most old cars come in to the shop and there are 10 major issues
not ever corrected. the owners don't want them fixed so we send them away,
find a good ASE shop,. no ASE shop needs to lie to you or cheat you
they are pros. and as such do not need to cheat you as they will be
fantastically successful just being honest ( a shock , huh )

we can not feel your throttle cable here in the internet cloud.
but if the cable sticks, and is stuck at near wide open throttle
the engine fuel system is cut. this is a FEATURE. to unflood engines.
(operators guide (lost) explains this)
why not get the car inspected,
and do expect there will be many problems on any 23 year car
this is true with all machines that old. not just yours. its called,
entropy. in the end , its all just a rust pile..
yours truly , mr. sleazy mechanic

My 2003 exposition just cuts off makes a the beeping like the door is open but starts back up

you need to drive the car and see if it bogs down when accelerating and if dies when pushing accelerator then the fuel filter is clogged but the beeping is because car looses power also check make sure the battery cables clean and tight and check alternator wires for tightness and cleanness no corrosion

Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.
