Does it do the bucking when you use the cruise control? If so, it's probably a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)!

If the idle speed is not steady, you could have a sticking idle speed control valve, or a dirty throttle body.

I have to push gas pedal to floor to gain speed


Check the throttle cable need to be adjusted, if your check engine light is on maybe throttle position sensor is bad. maybe engine needs a tune up or it could be the engine is on it's way.

When i accelerate gradually, no problem. When I push the gas pedal to gain speed quickly, the car loses power, like it is going to stall.


This could be a clogged air filter and /or fuel filter. start there. Also a dirty throttle body can cause this. Use brake clean to clean this. you only need to clean the inside of the throttle body , use a small brush and clean as far as it will reach, also clean the back of the plate. Start it (might take a minute) and spray the brake clean into the throttle at higher rpm's.

This can be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS). It will normally be found on the end of the throttle shaft oposite the cable connection. They are fairly simple to replace, and cost less than $50.
