Air filter, Fuel filter, plugs, wires, hell even an oil change can never hurt.
Is it throwing any codes?
Fuel Pressure Regulator, or perhaps an injector? Just throwing out ideas.
Bad Gas?
Whats your MPG?

I second the thought of it being the Cat. A clogged catalytic converter can cause those issues.

ew...114000 miles...just keep in mind if you do the flush...the trans might not even work like it should...unfortunatley on transmissions that got over 100000 miles when you do flushes on them....some of them like to just crap out...

^^ Yeah, sometimes the particles that have worn off your trans are the only things keeping it working, and if you flush it, then byebye particles and hello tanny no workie. I'd save that for last.

luckly

i bought the car with 92k miles on it.. almost 2-3 years ago..
ive put a lil over 20k on it since then..

that car doesnt have a dent / Scratch on it and luckly this is the real only problem ive had with it....

Depending how mechanically inclined you are, you might want to start shopping around for a used 3400 with trans out of a wrecked GA soon to swap...
