Well I would think start small. Look at your throttle cable and make sure you have full motion and it is tensioned correctly. If it is ok I would next replace the fuel filter, this is supposed to be done every once in a while (not sure of the mileage. Iusually do mine every 15-20K miles). If that isn't it your next likely steps would be testing fuel pressure and ensuring there is not a clog in the fuel lines. If you find low fuel pressure replace the fuel pump. Hope this helps!

Would an idle control valve cause a car not to accelerate?


no, idle air control valve is literally to control your idle speed.
what happen when you press on gas? car shakes, RPM goes up, or engine just bogs down?

Motor bogs down at stoplight when pushin gas pedal


The fuel pump relay will cause a stalling or no start condition. You are likely having mass airflow sensor, fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator issues.
