When was the last time you did a tune up, changed the fuel filter etc?

Do you have traction control or ABS? Those could be doing something weird, possibly.

There are many things that can cause the car to seem slow.

Fuel pressure being low
Clogged catalytic
Overly dirty throttle body.

Wow, that'* a really good explanation for your problem. That hadn't occurred to me at all. Let us know what it takes to fix it.

That woulda helped with the diagnosis a little... So you need a new vehicle speed sensor.
