Hi guys
ok im having an issue with my 2.0 it doesnt pick up at all until 3500rpms and the engine is really loud before 3500rpms and i have changed the Cap & Rotor, spark plugs & wires, I cant get the problem it seems like the car is going to shut off when i start moving in 1st gear so you have to hit the gas really hard to make it move and then it still doesnt move. Anyone know of anything like this? Please help me out.

your cat may be clogged, and that is causing a buildup of backpressure in the cylinders and not allowing them to breathe, hence the sluggishness from the car. if it is clogged you may be able to smell a rotten egg smell from your tailpipe. the other option is either raplacing it or remove and bang out the insides.
