2004 Jetta has no oomph???

Asked by Mar 03, 2011 at 02:00 PM about the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0l

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Out of no where my car started bogging down this morning.  When you engage the clutch it rattles.  When you shift and let off of the clutch and onto the gas the rattling subsides but the car doesn't pick up speed like it normally would.

About a year ago I had an accident and messed up the exhaust; it was disconnected from the engine near the catalytic converter.  Because it was most economical, the garage I took it to said it would be fine just to weld the exhaust where it had disconnected.

I have had no issues for the last year and am not sure if these two situations are related or what the problem might be?

Is this a compression issue?  Is it related to my spark plugs?  Does anyone have any suggestions?

open exhaust is very hard on the valves so it could be the problem.
