check exhaust flow...your catalytic converter could have melted internally and clogged your exhaust..this will give excessive back pressure and kill your motor for power....it happened to my 99 bmw 323is

Check your fuel supply system, the filter may be clogged, the fuel pump may be going out or a couple injectors may be bad.
