Check for vacuum leaks at the intake.

Ok thanx, also after you give it alot of throttle you get a bad smell in the car like boiled eggs

Check your catalytic converter. I think it is plugged. It can put off a rotten egg smell.

Thanxs, is there anyway to check catalytic coverters myself have no way to get car to a shop?

It is checked by back pressure. If you never did it before, I would recommend a shop. Also, at night time, check to see if the converter is getting red hot. If it is, it is plugged.

Thanx will check
