Car difficult to accelerate

Hey my mom has a 2000 Saturn and her car recently has been very difficult to accelerate. In fact shes scared to merge on to the high way because it takes up to 20 minutes to get to full speed. When shes at full speed however the car is fine. But when she needs to accelerate (stop and go traffic is especially frustrating) it won't go as normally.

Plus during acceleration the car seems to hiccup, or sputter.

In addition when trying to parallel park it often "dies".
