Question 1989 Grand Marquis has no power

Hello. My 1989 grand marquis runs fine except that it has no acceleration power, even with the gas pedel all the way to the floor. it will get up to speed just not very quickly. wouldnt want to pull out in front of someone or try passing. fuel filters have been changed, tranny works fine shifting too. thanks.

Look at the linkage on the throttle. Your TV (kickdown) cable has a grommet holding the cable tight. See if it is broken or missing.
