Hi there. It is very likely that a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS) is causing your problem. The TPS receives signals from your computer telling it where to position the throttle at any given time. A faulty TPS will also cause erratic RPMs while idling. A mechanic sent by YourMechanic can quickly diagnose the extent of your acceleration issue and replace your throttle position sensor if needed.
