Question: why is the acceleration slow?

Recently I've had a problem with my accelerator. When pushing on the gas from stop, the car is slow to accelerate and does not move past 2000 RPMs. Is this do to a plug in the fuel pump or elsewhere? No engine lights are on and it otherwise runs fine.

It could be due to a restriction in the fuel line, but it could be several other things as well such as a plugged exhaust, vacuum leak, plugged air filter, or fouled spark plugs. If it has been a while since you've done some maintenance you may want to just throw a air and fuel filter in as well as a set of spark plugs and see how it runs after. Otherwise I see mass air flow sensors go bad a LOT causing poor acceleration (and not necessarily setting check engine lights)
