What would cause choppy acceleration

The check engine light came on, not only that but I feel when I accelerate
through the lower gears it doesn't accelerate smoothly but rather choppy. I
have a 99 Ford Ranger Super Cab 4x4 with the off road package. If somebody
could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Take it and have the codes read and see exactly what the problem is.
The morons at Autozone and the like will read them for free (in an effort to
sell you parts).
Anything else is just wild assed guessing

Not all of us that work/worked at AutoZone are morons. Some of us actually
knew what we were talking about and tried to help customers out. Of course
the company did not like that so I had to find another job. Go figure!

Re: What would cause choppy acceleration

No personal offense intended, but you know exactly what I mean.
On rare occasion there is someone in one of those stores that has some
knowledge, but the stores seem to pride themselves on hiring pimply faced 20
year olds that are experts in selling fart can mufflers, pine scented auto
air freshners, illuminated windshield wiper nozzles, and Japanese window
stickers.
When they accidentally hire someone that has some auto knowledge I notice
they don't last long.

Sounds like a throttle position sensor. Maybe even a bad o2 sensor...
