also when you press the gas the car kinda gasps for air and is like its out of gas it starts poping under the hood


Popping under hood? Do you mean back firing? If so how long since your timing belt was replace? If unsure I would inspect timing belt for wear, tension and proper alignment.

Agree with dandyoun,sound,s like it may be out of time,back firing is sign of of the time.
