You don't specify make, model, year, engine or transmission, but if an auto, a common cause of this is failure of the 1-2 shift solenoid in the trans, meaning that it cannot find low gears, hence the sluggish takeoff.

It is not an expensive part, but it is best to have the vehicle on a hoist as the trans pan must come off. Also this fault should cause the check engine light or the overdrive light to blink a trouble code.

My 2001 jimmy has a slow and sluggish takeoff and acceleration speed. Wiring harness was melted apart from busted heater core hose.would a bad connection cause this problem.


Usually not. If it is shuddering while accelerating it's usually a plug wire. If you have a check engine light on then start there

What would cause my 2002 hyundai santa fe v6 to take off slow


If it seems to lack power on takeoff, but does not idle rough, cough or splutter, or stall, I'd suspect your low gear shift solenoid has failed in the tranny. This causes the trans to be unable to find low gear. Get a readout of trouble codes as there should be one to assist in finding the cause.

The O/D Off light keeps flashing while driving...after 1/2 hr drive...also slow take off at times.


The flashing light indicates an electrical malfunction within the transmission circuit. That along with the slow takeoff would suggest that the problem is a faulty shift solenoid, or damaged wiring harness connected to it. I had the same problem with mine, and it was the Number 2 Solenoid in the transmission. It can be accessed by draining the transmission and removing the lower cover. If the wiring is fractured internally but not completely severed (e.g. due to long term heat exposure and flexion) the problem would only occur sporadically. A temprorary workaround to the slow takeoff is to manually put it in 2nd gear and then back to Drive as you accelerate, that worked for me at least.

Car sometimes shut off at stop,turns,and takeoffs


Sounds like your IAC (idle air control) is moving slow, dirty with carbon, you can try cleaning it,
I have had short success with cleaning them and always end up replaceing the IAC. IAC is located at the throttle body.
