SOURCE: no acceleration
I had the same problem with one exception. It would rev higher than 3500 but the higher it revved the more it bogged. I had the catalytic converter replaced. I thought I bought a new car. Acceleration is just like new. It was easy enough to test. My mechanic cut a hole in the exhaust pipe in front of the catalytic converter. It sounded like a truck but the acceleration difference was immediate. Easy diagnosis.
The car is hard to shift because the more you press on the accelerator the more the computer for the transmission won't let it shift. Which in turn causes the car to bog more sending more unburned fuel into the catalytic converter. Which in turn causes more carbon build up and more back pressure. Vicious cycle. It will only get worse.
My thermostat caused the entire problem. Thermostat was stuck open, engine never got to operating temp most days. Car burned rich. Bad gas mileage. A lot of unspent fuel being dumped into the converter. Probably have some underlying cause that needs to be addressed. Bad plugs, wires, coil, fuel filter.

Your Constant velocity joints have gone bad. the Boot that holds th grease has leaked out all the grease and the bearing inside are not being lubicated and thats where the poping comes from. Have someone look at the axle (CV) to determine if repairable or you might have to replace the axle. Hope this helps

Make sure you have the trany in "D" (drive) and not in a lower gear like 1,2 or 3. Some models must be in "econo" (not "power") setting for the trany to shift at a lower rpm. It will also get in overdrive sooner.
