Sounds like it is very possible, but if you have any check engine lights on, I would get someone to scan the codes for you and start with those repairs. You might just need a sensor or other part not included in a tune up. You will need to check the condition of the spark plugs, wires, filters etc. to determine the other things needed as well.

Have trans scanned for codes.(maybe the reason for the sluggish take-off is that it's starting out in second gear , or the lock-up clutch is engaging incorrectly(early).
