Why does the Chevy 350 bog on acceleration?

I’ve been noticing that my Chevy 350 isn’t accelerating properly. It makes me nervous to even drive my car at this point. What are some reasons the Chevy 350 bogs on acceleration?

Unfortunately, this is a common Chevrolet problem. There are several reasons the Chevy 350 bogs on acceleration, including problems with the ignition system, fuel pump, air filter, catalytic converter, or muffler.
The most common cause is that your Chevy 350’s fuel filter is clogged or the pump isn’t working properly. Either of these fuel delivery issues can bog down your engine.
Regardless of what the cause is, you can prevent any further damage by addressing whatever the issue is right away. Doing so will prevent the problem from progressing—and get your acceleration back up to snuff!
