IS the engine misfiring or bogging down?

Are there any codes in the computer?

bogging down and i dont know nothing about no codes in the computer. I was go try to get the car to autozone for that purpose. but i'm scared to worsen the condition or that the engine may seize up or blow!

If the engine is bogging down, I would suspect a fuel delivery condition.

If the engine is misfiring, i would suspect bad tune up parts.

If your engine is burning coolant, I would suspect a bad intake manifold gasket or bad intake manifold leaking engine coolant into the cylinders causing your engine to misfire.
