Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Now it won't accelerate when I press on the
gas. It takes forever to get to 20mph after a
stop. The engine revs but im getting very
low acceleration. I have the gas pedal down
to the floor and rpms go up but doesn't
seem to catch till after 4000 rpms then
seems to sputter if I try to accelerate more.
Please help.

Check air filter have throttle body cleaned change fuel filter if have not done so in a while also add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank. If this does not help you may have a clogged catalytic converter.
