Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could cause a lack of engine power and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. The problem could be electrical, possibly an internal engine problem, an exhaust restriction, it may be a fuel delivery concern.

What year is the vehicle?

Has any actual testing been done?
