It looks like there can be a variety of reasons as to why your Chevy Monte Carlo is losing power under acceleration. These reasons include a fault in the ignition system, low fuel pressure or even a vacuum leak being present. Because the information provided is a bit limited, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come by and test drive your Chevy. They will have the experience to quickly determine why your Monte Carlo is losing power under acceleration and make the repairs needed to get your Chevy running the way it should.
