The car has 150k miles on it. It starts and idles fine but it just is so slow or sluggish until it reaches cruising speed then it's fine. It occurs everytime I start to drive the car. Any suggestions?

    Check all the big intake hoses for leaks and check the diagnostic trouble codes. Post the codes here and we can better advise you.
