Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If the check engine light or any other warning light has come on with this issue on the dash the first thing that needs done is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a scan tool that can plug in and communicate with all computers in your model.Once this is done any codes set will need diagnosed to help locate and correct this issue here.

I have seen commonly a restricted exhaust component like a catalytic converter.This will plug up and cause a loss of acceleration/power like this here.If you have not had the exhaust back pressure tested this should be done to see if this is the cause here.In other cases I have seen issues with a restricted fuel filter or weak fuel pump that can cause low pressure and cause this as well.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
