    Might be dirty gas. Let that tank run all the way out then put new gas in. The problem usually goes away. Wouldn't hurt to put a gas additive in there either.

    . Check for codes.

    . Replace spark plugs (NGK), if they haven't been changed in 50,000 miles.

    . Focus on the MAF Sensor, if the problem persists.

    Where do you hear this noise coming from? Is the noise a new symptom?

    Yes it is a new sympton it appears that when I press the accelerator the exhaust noise is loud but I lack power. No noise from the exhaust when in higher gears.

    Check the exhaust system for a leak.

    Your clutch has worn to the point where there's no grip anymore. Needs replaced.
