COMMENT BACK ON HERE
you might want to replace your fuel filter. on your car you should not have to pump the gas to get it started. it is fuel injected there is no carburetor. it is fueled by electronics. your car sounds like its getting enough gas to start and idle but not enough to accelerate. your fuel filter could be stopped up.
running the fuel pump low on fuel can make it over work. try changing the fuel filter like bandit suggests, it can help .
I would have the fuel pump checked out as well. Usually they just straight out fail, but I have seen a couple that "act up" before quitting altogether. As always, trouble shoot first, then spend the money replacing the correct part.
