This is caused by the reverse clutch being worn out, this will require the trans to be overhauled.

What cause a sluggish acceleration on the 87 fiero

poor fuel pressure and or volume, poor fuel quality, ignition timing is off, bad throttle position sensor(TPS), dirty air filter, fuel injector/s dirty or plugged or not functioning properly, bad manifold air pressure sensor(MAP). just some things that can cause your problem. I would suggest taking your car to a shop to have it diagnosed unless you have the testing equipment and specs to know what is within specs.

I have 2003 envoy. when i put it into drive(D) it acts like i'm in nuetral or park when touch the gas pedal. anyone have any ideas?

(Not a mechanic) First thing to check is the transmission fluid level. If excessivly low it may not move. (Usually check trans fluid with transmission dip stick, while engine is idling and warmed up) Consult owners manual to verify procedure. If your fluid levels are normal or close to normal, you should call a transmission shop unless you are or know a good mechanic.

Does having to shift from reverse drive and park a lot wear down a transmission faster. Like lets say nearly 30 times a day. I personally wouldnt think say so but others i know say different. I would like...

it would cause more wear and tear than a normal use car but a taxi driver friend of mine only puts it in nuetral when stopped,then back in drive or reverse when needed...he also starts engine in nuetral.

97 neon pops into nuetral when I hit 25 mph....

Sounds to me like you are having a transmission problem.  Basically your transmission has gone into "limp" mode which is why you can drive your car up to 25mph but no further.  Basically your transmission has limited it self to reverse, neutral, and 1st gear.  Take your car to a transmission shop and have it diagnosed.  Often a simple flush and fill will fix the problem, but you might need a new transmission.
