Is the check engine light on? I would take it to an auto parts store and have any codes read. It sounds like a possible problem with the throttle position sensor. It is located under hood, center, upper engine area, rear of valve cover, mounted on driver side of throttle valve assembly. Good luck and hope this helps.

If it loses pressure after a few pumps, either the clutch master cylinder and/or clutch slave cylinder are defective, or there is a leak elsewhere in the system. Also low RPMs and low power are usually due to the ignition timing being incorrect. An incorrectly installed timing belt can also cause low power.
