It may be the EGR, but is it possible to reply to this post with mileage on the vehicle? Were there any repairs done recently? Has the fuel pressure been tested??? This info will help me and other experts resolve your problem quicker. Thank you for using Fixya.

This sounds like you have a burned area in the throttle position switch(tps). this would be my first suspect. also just for good maintenance, check your fuel filter.

My 1998 200sx stopped accelerating while getting on freeway.


Could be the cable that actavates the throttle plate on the intake..
The cable comes from the gas pedel and pulls on the throttle plane in the intake manifold.. opening the plate to let air flow through to the engine. On the other side from the cable is a plastic sensor with wires attached to it this is the Throttle position sensor.. if this is disconnected or broken the computer cannot receive the single that you are pushing on the gas pedel.. very rare for the throttle position sensor to break completly.. best posibility broken cable.. open hood find cable connected to throttle body, have someone in car push pedel see if it moves. Good luck.

How do i fix low gas mileage. the manual says 11 km city and almost 18 km highway driving. however i only get 5 km city and almost 10 km highway


First, high mileage, older car - loss of mpg.
Second, have you heard of keeping your car in good running shape - meaning doing the maintenance an a regular basis?
Change the oil on time, change the air filter, make sure every thing is working right, make sure the tires are wearing right.
All this contributes to good mpg - but older high milage - loss of mpg.
Can't fix that!

When you push the gas pedel the vehicle accelerates slowly


could be bad fuel pump to clogging fuel filter to needing a new air filter or a mere tune up ...check for the obvious ..ex. corroded or cracked vacuum lines or just plain obvious wires or vacuum lines missing or maby just a shot of carb-cleaner and oil the lines to the throttle body may help
