Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I'm going 45 to 50 and their is a bend in the
road that forces you to go down to 30mph. After
the bend when you try to go back to 45 it won't
do either wait a few secounds or take you're foot
off and try again.

There really is nothing to go on so I would say do a tuneup and have the catalytic converter checked to make sure it is not plugged up.
