Sounds like a carburetor problem, but there could be other problems. What engine do you have?

Sounds like you are not getting adequate fuel.

Check the fuel line for cracks which may be draining off the gas when you try to accelerate the engine.

Good luck!

what happens when you give it gas with the throttle. does it die or stall or just stay at the same speed. if it stays the same speed maybe its not the engine but a cable that came loose or broke.
