Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 2 years ago.
Does it feel like the engine is the issue- bogging down or acting starved for gas- or does the engine rev up normal but the transmission is slow to keep up?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
put foot on throttle and no response at first then van moves off after a few seconds and back to normal
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 2 years ago.
There have been some issues on recent vehicles, where the wiring to the throttle body is suspect- and a new connector and wire ends is spliced in place. You could first try disconnecting the throttle connector and applying some di-electric grease, reconnect and disconnect a few times to seat the connector pins
