There is a mass air flow valve in the exhaust that could be giving you grief, and or the catalytic converter. These are other things to look at...

sounds like a plugged cat converter, you can almost tell by the sound and feel, the engine will sound muffled and the car has a constipated feel

Sounds like a plugged cat but I had one of these cars and ended up being the mass air flow valve and not the cat. MAF should be checked first.

Especially if you have an aftermarket air filter that requires oil. The oil for the air filter contaminates the MAF. HTH. -Jim

I agree Jim those air filters that are oil charged cause a lot of problems, People that have them either don't clean and recharge them or I get them with the engine light on and I pull them in the shop and they are dripping oil. I personally would not put one in my car
