Sluggish acceleration in 1997 Nissan Sentra

My 1997 Nissan Sentra has 233,000 miles and the last time I got gas in it I noticed the acceleration was very sluggish, I tried fuel injector cleaner and gas treatment and neither helped. What else could it be. Thanks for any help.

If it is not missing, I'd do a compression check. A timing belt skipping a cog will do it too.

Replace fuel filter if it has not been replaced in awhile. Then check fuel pressure and *volume* as discussed here...

Thank you, I had planned on taking it to have it looked at tomorrow and now know what to ask to have looked at.
