Accerleration sluggish


Try cleaning the fuel injection system with seafoam and replacing the fuel filter. Look up seafoam on youtube. BTW really really really really bad idea running a vehicle on jack in gear.

Sluggish accelleration


If the check engine light is on, it could be one of several different sensors.
Otherwise, I would want to know what base fuel pressure is to start with. And has the fuel filter been replaced in the past couple of years ?

You have to have the code pulled to see what it is. This MAY help but you should also have the fuel pressure checked to see if you have a blockage usually when a pump goes out the vehicle won't start or may just idle.GOOD LUCK

one unit that operates ratio changes and is connected to the engine is that vacuum operated actuator on the transmission
it is possible that that unit is failing , vacuum hose is leaking and that will cause ratio changes as the vacuum varies
run the fault codes to check for wiring problems or VSS or TCM problems as well
