ok here goes, while driving above parking lot speeds my 1996 (with2.0 98 engine) escort seems to be jerky, the a/c is not on. as soon as I shift into second it seems that it has a hard time wanting to move, 3rd gear is worse, it is drivable but I'm afraid that if I continue down this path my engine will explode. Any ideas what this issue could be? All the vacuum lines are connected and it idles smooth, could it be something as simple as a fuel filter? I'm lost as hell and I could really use the help, thanks!

Fuel filter would be a good thing to change but what else have you checked? Did it run fine after the swap of it this later down the road? It sort of sounds like a clogged cat.

check engine light, trouble codes, electronic cleaner, oh my

ok, the check engine light cam on, I was getting p0500 and p1506, p0500 has to do with the speed sensor, and I pulled it out, cleaned the living daylights out of it, and put it back in. Then I pulled out the IAC, cleaned the daylights out of it, the problem still persists but it seems to be when I put my foot down on the accelerator, any new leads?
