My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This sounds like a possible lack of fuel to the engine,I have seen low fuel pressure or volume issues due to plugged fuel filters or a fuel pump intermittently acting up that will cause this issue off and on like this here.The lean condition causes lack of power or no power when accelerating and a possible lean condition engine pinging issue.I would have the fuel system tested to see if you can pinpoint one of these as the cause here.
Thanks Pete
