Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Dodge Neon SXT. It's have
acceleration problems for the past
month almost. When I initially start
driving, it will go around 10 mph and
stay there until further on in my
driving. When I'm accelerating, or
have just cranked the car, it jerks and
vibrates really hard. Mechanic told
me it might be the computer and I
would have to take it to a dealership,
after he charged me for fixing
everything I didn't ask him to fix. One
time it stopped while I was driving.
When this first started I could pull
over, crank the car, and it would be
fine. Obviously, it's a lot worse now.

Just had this problem recently, i went it got it checked out and some of the fuel lines were loose. And a few sensors were bad, they said if i have the same problem later on it may be the computer. Basically if that's the problem it should be a 60 dollar fix just to put the tubes back into place.
