This problem is kinda new.It seems when I tried to
take off earlier my car wouldn't acclerate.It just kinda
acted like the motor was in netural. If I eased the gas
it would acclerate slowly.After I turned the car off it
seemed fine.No more bog. Any ideas?

It sounds to me like a valve was sticking in the tranny. If you put it in gear and it acted like it was in neutrall there could be a valve sticking in the tranny that is not allowing fluid to or from the torque converter.

For the record the TCC or TPS would not cause this type of problem. TCC is torque converter lockup and would only affect when he is trying to stop. The TPS is the throttle position sensor and although could cause the motor to act flooded with fuel should not be able to cause the tranny not to engage.

My opinion is to get a tranny fluid flush done if you have not had one done in the past 12 months. Ask the tech when he gets it apart to please take the trans filter apart so you and him can glance inside the filter to see if there are any "chunks" in it.

Also I've heard mention if I'm correct of switching to
