My car is slow to take off. It is not picking up speed on the highway or going uphill.
Low power can be caused by many things. If you had a diagnosed misfire for example the catalytic converter might be your issue. Other things that can cause similar symptoms are clogged fuel filters, low fuel pressure, a transmission slipping, etc. My suggestion would be to get help from a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you correctly diagnose your car’s acceleration issue.
