unhappy engine over 2.5k

HI EVERYONE,

I have a 98 EL GLI, auto, 4L

Just recently when I accelerate over about 2.5K the engine feels like it can't make up its mind what it wants to do. It vibrates and farts arount so I pull throttle back. It feels like it doesn't know what gear to ask for an has a few stabs at it. I can't push it because it feels wrong with the peddle about on the floor and the revvs bouncing around 2.5k

??could this be transmission related or enging????

under very gradual acceleration it is ok it will revv right through just like it used to.

The car is still perfect for normal trafic driving my mum drives my car sometimes and she didn't say anything because she stays under 2.5K.

anyway I can't wait to here what you guys suggest
CROSS MY FINGERS IT IS SIMPLE (FUEL PUMPetc)

THANKS

ROBBO

May be way off base but the TFI module on the side of the dizzy can do that, it doesnt like heat so lets bolt it on the side of a motor lol, there was a recall on over 2 million cars in the USA because of them so check it out

Sounds electrical to me but may be a fuel issue.
I remember my car drove like that after washing it as I got water in the distributer.
Could be a cracked distributer cap or buggered leads.
Take it to a mechanic and get them to look at it.
They'll tell you what's wrong and they you can fix it your self.
