Re: need help !!!

Better to get it scanned and see what shows rather than replace parts not needed.Has the riming belt ever been replaced ? Check plugs and timing for a start , also compressions if still not right.

Re: need help !!!

You may have a plugged catalytic converter. If the exhaust gets hot on the engine side of the cat, but cooler on the downstream side, is a good indicator. Also if you tap it with a mallet and you hear rattling.

Cyl compressions .As already suggested , I would take cover of and check timing setting / belt hasn't jumped , eliminates one possible cause .
