1984 944 Acceleration surging

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1984; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 11,000;

I made a 15 mph left turn and the acceleration immediately stumbled. It began surging (with the pedal applied) and wouldn't go past about 15 mph. The tach would go from idle speed to no more than 1200 rpm, no matter how much I applied the throttle (while moving). When I came to stop lights the car idled correctly. If I swerved quickly left-right-left, the power would come back on as normal snd I could go the speed limit, but would go away again . I had to use this trick continually to get the car home.
