Replace the air and fuel filter and have the catalytic converter looked at. It's common for the catalytic converter to go bad and start to restrict the exhaust flow. This is more noticeable when the exhaust system heats up rather then when it's cold, once the cat's heats up. The screen in the housing plugs up causing the restriction, you can go to any muffler shop and have them check the catalytic converter and most places do this free of charge. Good luck

Poor idle and no acceleration on a '91 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton p/u w/4.3l v6 manual trans

there is vital information missing here
to start with it is a v 6 so there will be 2--HO2S sensors one for each bank before the cat converter and 2 --O2ensors --one for each bank after the cat converter
there is a vast difference between HO2s and O2 sensors as each reports different information to the ECM
next slow acceleration can be accelerator position sensor or throttle position motor
every time you read the codes it cancels them so you have to run the vehicle for a few miles for codes to reappear
from the codes there can be up to 7 reasons for that code to appear so you don't pick on the first one as it could be another or a combination of others

Gmc acceleration

Could be almost anything. Start by making sure the air cleaner IS the right size (poor fit can cause rough acceleration), and isn't loaded up with crud which tends to "choke out" the engine when under heavy load..

Poor acceleration

As you haven't stated if its petrol or diesel, I can only give you a general check list. 1. fuel pressure/delivery rate/fuel pressure regulator. 2. fuel filter. 3. intake manifold air control solenoid. 4. air intake system/vacuum system - leaks/blockage. 5.air filter. 6. exhaust system/catalytic converter. 7. engine compression. 8. ignition system. 9. injectors. 10. engine management system - connections. 11. crankshaft position sensor. 12. evaporative emission (EVAP) canister. 13. Mass air flow sensor (MAF). 14. Throttle position (TP) sensor. 15. Engine/clutch/breaks condition. 16. Engine control module (ECM). It seems a lot to check, but that is the list given from a data sheet. Knock yourself out and have fun.

Just changed timing belt and water pump car starts fine but has poor acceleration.does anyone know why?

is the timing back to the factory setup? sometimes if the timing is still off from what it should be, then it can cause problems like poor acceleration or running at high idle.

Hello, The problem is in your spark plug wires they are probably too old this causes not enough fire to flow to your spark plugs. also you should change your distributor cap and rotor.
