My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

With what you have described here the next thing I would check is to see if the exhaust is restricted.I have seen restricted components like the catalytic converter and muffler cause this type of fault here.I would have this checked to see if you have a restriction in the exhaust.I would also inspect to see if there is any damage to the exhaust components causing this.

If damage or restriction is found then it would need corrected to correct this here.

Thanks Pete
