The engine cuts off like its out of gas. It is intermittent and can happen when I am doing 70 on highway, the power starts to drop I can depress the gas pedal and after repeated pumping will sometimes...

Have you scanned for any fault codes? Most parts stores have them available to loan out short-term (5 to 10 minutes in their parking lot).

Without any OBD scan, it's very difficult to even point you in a direction.

It could be electrical or fuel-related. When was the last time you had the fuel filter replaced? Check the plugs/coils for fouling and proper connection. Check the battery connections to make sure nothing is loose.

1993 paseo slows down when gas pedal is at a certain spot

It could possibly be a throttle position sensor that is going bad in one spot. When it gets on one bad spot the ECU will get a signal saying that the throttle is completely closed and cut off fuel.

The part where you say that sometimes the car acts like it dont want to crank has me thinking your problem might be with the battery terminals. Check and make sure they are clean and tight. This would be where i would start diagnosing this problem from what you described.

Bogs out when i accelerate

plug wires!? They go bad over time, but may still look ok from outside ... get an ohm meter and pull a wire and check ... more than 500 ohms per foot is no good..... Good high quality wires will be no more than 150 ohms per foot.

99 camry sluggish, fune in nuetral but jerky and sluggish when in

dirty injectors.....coil...plugs....where to begin is the better question. Check your plugs...and dump in a bottle of fuel system cleaner. If that doesnt cut it that narrows it down to your coil not firing...or an injector thats just bad. If its anything more serious like a valve not closing thats out of your hands but try these simple tricks first.

Sluggish when taking off

I had a very similar problem with my prizm, and it was mass air flow sensor. They cleaned it out, and now shes back to running good! It could also be an O2 sensor, or a regulator.

Good luck!
