What year car do you have?

It can be 3 things -off the top of my head, anyway

1) Inaccurate readings from MAF, TPS, or some other air/fuel measurement.

2) clogged exhaust at EGR or Cats.

3) leaking fuel injectors

THere's an outside chance your timing chain jumped, and your timing is off .. . .

Hard to say when the engine's that old . . .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
