05 rendezvous When I first accelerate it feels sluggish through 1st and 2nd gear then it's normal driving. Also, randomly when on the freeway I will give it gas and it won't go. I take my foot off the gas and do it again, after the 2nd or 3rd time it's normal. No lights come on and none of the gauges move. Thoughts?

How many miles on it and have you done all the required maintenance for that mileage?
Other than the maintenance items I would check fuel pressure and a possible clogged catalytic converter.

120k, I've put on about 30 of those and the person before did all the maintenance as have I.
I've thought about the cat conv, I'll look in to that further. Thanks
