vibrating and acerlating problem

it all started with a little vibration only sometimes then it turned into a bigger vibration everytime i stop which is what i have now ... then when i try and give it gas away from a stop it feel like i have no power and can barely get the car to move, but as i get up into higher speeds it is fine. the gear symbol is not illuminated but doesnt really mean much. i ordered the scanner from pellican parts and just waiting for it to come in.

does any1 have any idea/suggestions i can try??

sounds to me like a sticking caliper. the vibration is probably due to a warped brake rotor

hah. my car is doing the same thing and when someone test drives it...nothing goes wrong. my vibrating usually happens when the car is cold and the no power happens usually in 2nd gear. It really ticks me off...almost feels like my car is slow to react.

does it shake while you are sitting there like waiting for a light? cuz i feel like i'm shaking back and forth...you can even tell if you are behind my car. I might just have a different problem...maybe change my spark plugs? hehe, i'm not too sure, i'm a girl I don't know everything about cars. :/
