Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could be going on. You may have an engine power related concern such as limp in due to an electronic throttle control issue, it may be low fuel pressure or an exhaust restriction, you may have a transmission related problem.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
