Delayed Response

After getting out of work today I jumped in the car. (94' mustang v6 3.8) I let it warm up for about 3 minutes before going. Then put it into drive and slowly applied pressure on the gas pedal. It wasnt doing anything. Rpm's stayed about idle 500rpms. I removed pressure and reapplied and it's like it was hesitating to rise in rpms and rise in speed. But then it seemed that it corrected itself...any suggestions would be great. thanks guys.

Doc here:

Is the Car EFI , TBI or Carbed?

On Carbed, The Choke could have Stuck, or The primary pump Could be going out or leaking.

On both, the linkage could Be hanging up. may want to pull the air-cleaner and inspect.

To give you more we need to know more about the Engine, Induction system etc.
