Any lights lit up on the dash? Sounds like a vacuum leak or other issue.

yes. battery, engine light are on for quite sometime before this problem started.

Battery light usual means alternator/voltage regulator related and the check engine light means a fault code is stored in the system. Drive over to your local auto parts store and have them scan the codes for free. Ex. P0301. Post the codes back here and I can help further.

I've got the codes:P0313, P1349, P0174, P0171, P0491, P0492. Thanks.
