Is the engine light on? Does it run better when cold and get worse as it warms up? Do you smell rotten eggs? Is their a hissing noise when you try to accelerate? If all or most of these apply then your catalytic converter may be restricted. Or for something much less expensive you may need a serious tune up.

Doe it accelerate after you reach a certain speed? 2001 to 2003 were known to have bad brains.
