Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

Are there any warning lights coming on,any codes setting?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No. When I press the gas pedal, i don't get any acceleration.
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
The issue that you are describing is consistent with the torque converter slipping when added torque is placed.The torque converter fins get worn over time and cause this issue.What I would suggest as a first step is to have the vehicle hooked to a transmission scan tool which will monitor the converter while driving.
