Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that could cause a lack of acceleration or loss of engine power. If RPM's don't raise at all when pressing the throttle then I would first suspect an electronic throttle control issue, whether it's with the throttle body itself, wiring or accelerator peal position sensor.

What model is the vehicle?
Have you checked for fault codes?

What was the original problem?
