I would check the fuel and air filters, most fuel filters are inline filters so they are easy to change and dont cost that much.

It is amost always that you have a build up of carbon (think soot inside a chimeny) inside your throttle body. That carbon accumulated over time and has reduced the clearance of the throttle plates that move in response to pressing down on the accelerator pedal. The reduced clearance causes the throttle plates to bind or drag on the carbon so it feels like you have to really push on the pedal to get the car going.the fix is relatively simple. You need to have the thtottle body cleaned. If you're handy, you can do it yourself. just follow the big black tube that runs from the air filter in the front of your car back to the engine. that tube ends at the throttle body.you can buy a can of spray carburetor or throttle body cleaner in a parts store (they are the same product with different labels). Take the big black bellows (hose) off of the throttle body end and look into the throttle body. You'll see the throttle plates. Just spray the cleaner in there (be sure to wear safety glasses as it can spray back at you if you have the throttle closed.then have someone get in the car and press the accelerator down and hold it down. spray the walls of the throttle body as the throttle is held open.if you have an old toothbrush you can scrub the walls down after you spray themleave the throttle held open for a few minutes to let the carburetor cleaner evaproate then start the engine. spray around the throttle plates as the engine is revved up and down by someone in the car.then shut the engine off and reconnect the bellows. You should find that your problem is fixed.hope that helps

if all your ignition components are up to date, I would say you have a stretched throttle cable.
