Have you replaced the fuel filter, if it is partially blocked it will cause surging. Or the air sensor down by the air filter is a very fine wire that gives incorrect readings if dirty ( normally from running a pod filter) . You can buy a spray that you spray in the intake with the engine running to clean it. Hope this works cheers :)

2003 DeVille. Cranks and seems to idle normally. When trying to drive it will not accelerate and seems to choke back. Someone has suggested the catalytic converter needs replacement.

Before you replace your catalytic converter, you can disconnect it and take if for a drive. If the problem goes away, you know you may have a bad component. If the problem is still present, might have other problems.

Why does a 94 v-8 limited vehicle have acceleration surges.this happens with acceleration or with brake applied just after using accelerator.this does not happen at idle or in neutral. why does this h

Surges are usually from dirty throttle body's, idle air control motors, or airfilters. I would clean or replace these first. Other things could be O2 sensors, or bad catalytic converters.

Pull the 02 sensor in front of the catalytic converter (between the engine and converter) or loosen the exhaust pipe at the exhaust manifold. This will give the engine breathing room, if the converter is clogged. Power will pick up dramatically. Also a bad converter will cause an enormous amount of heat coming out of the tail pipe. Don't touch it. Normally you could grab the tail pipe for a few seconds before it got too warm.

The 02 sensor after the the converter is telling you there is a fuel mixtue problem and the converter isn't burning it off. The cat converter itself can be the problem. Have it inspected.
