Clean throttle body and check air filter replace fuel filter add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.

A plugged catalytic converter also springs to mind. A muffler shop can tell you for sure. Simply have them remove it and install a piece of pipe in its place. It's not worth buying a new one for a car that old.
