At that mileage I'd definitely get the belt changed. It could have very well jumped time or even lost a tooth when you gave it the beans. That could easily cause sluggish response due to improper timing. Then again the converter could also be on it's way out. I'm leaning towards the t-belt though. Take the cover off and turn the motor over by hand and inspect it. You'll notice if it's cracked or has missing teeth.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
