My guess would be you either slipped a cog or two on the timing belt, or you have a coil going bad.

Also could be a bad plug, plug wire, etc.

Sounds to me like you have a clogged catalytic converter. Good luck.

Sounds like an ignition problem.

Replace all ignition components that are part of a tune up on your car and you should be good to go.

Could be a chunk of carbon stuck in the EGR valve.

map sensor...


do you have a check engine light on?

It hasn't burnt up all the oil, has it? Seriously. Check it if you haven't.

My thoughts exactly. Plus and wires are your first to be checked, then if they're good (impossible the plugs are good looking right now) then go to the dealer.

No engine light. But I haven't been able to restart it as of yet anyway.

With something that drastic, your coil probably took a shit.

i agree how long has it been since you changed out plugs, wires, etc. put only NGK or Denso plugs back in it.

If you did jump a tooth on the belt, then you can check. Mark the distributer, then loosen it. Most new cars only give you about 20 degrees of movment, but it should be enough to tell. Have someone crank it over as you turn the distributer. It should catch and start if you slipped the belt.
Becareful where you grab it, or you will get a shock up your arm from the coil. Make sure you grab it low around the edges of the distributer just below the cap. This is my bet on what happened.

Most other things, like the coil, plug wires arcing should cause a check engine light.

The plugged cat can be checked by unbolting the exhaust just before the cat. If that is the problem you will see improvment.

The other problem that might be what you described is a bad fuel pump. It might give you enough to limp along, and run, but when you try to accelerate it can't keep up. But this also should give a check engine light.

Fuel injected?

If an injector got somewhat plugged it could be injecting a stream and not a spray pattern which would diminish power and foul plugs.

Also during a rapid change in throttle position, the throttle position sensor could have moved which should have given you the engine light in the dash. Ignition errors should also display the engine light.

Edit in: Also the fuel pressure regulator could have let go and allowing higher than normal pressure into the fuel injectors or fuel rail manifold.

Edit#2: Most likely the timing belt.
