Is check engine light on? If so have codes read. This will get us to a solution quicker.

Check engine light is always on, small hole in muffler. Bought the car that way 5 years ago

Check engine light will store more than just one code. Without knowing what codes are stored there we are just guessing at your problem. I rather not thro good money away just guessing.

I'll have to see if I can get the car towed to a mechanic. Thank you for your time.

If in USA some auto zones will loan you a code reader. Small refundable deposit required. They come with directions and are real easy to use.

Thank you. I'll ask a friend to bring me there today
