Q: No acceleration when I press the gas

If the engine just revs up after you put it into gear, I would suspect a transmission problem. But if you don't have any control over engine speed it's likely a linkage malfunction between the pedal and throttle body, or electric throttle body depending on your particular engine. Have a certified mechanic diagnose your gas pedal problem for you and make the necessary repairs to get you going again.
