Acceleration

Asked by Jul 24, 2017 at 01:19 AM about the 1998 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 Saturn SL2 that I have put so much money
into. I just did the loaders, headgaskef, surpentine belt,  
and all the seals. Now, my car is having issues
accelerating. You can have your foot practically all the
way down and not going over 30mph. Do you have any
ideas about what could be causing this?
