You might also want to check your engine timing . It sounds like it could be a timing chain or belt (depending on the engine)

If it were mine, I'd take it to an AutoZone and get a free computer read out. Then you'll have a much better idea of what's wrong.

If you have had a tune up done recently, IE, spark plug replacement, HECI Accel Coil pack, Remove the plug wires one at a time while the engine is off and examine them for damage caused by electrical discharge through the plug wire insulation, it will look burnt and like something bursted out from the middle of the wire. I had this happen to me after installing and Accel Coil Pack, the Plugs were bad and the HECI discharge was too much for the wire/plug causing a massive energy burst to the engine ground system, this was causing major power drops on the freeway making the engine feel bogged down.

Find the bad wire, replace the wires with High performance wires and plugs which are necessary when using and HECI coil pack, Cheers.
