I have poor acceleration in my car. I have to pump the gas pedal to get good acceleration.
The engine is equipped with fuel injection and pumping the gas pedal may be an indication that the fuel pressure is lower than normal or that the throttle control valve is malfunctioning. I recommend having the computer scanned for codes and the fuel system checked for pressure and flow issues. Contact a qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to diagnose why your car is slow to accelerate.
