VAUXHALL ZAFIRA CLUTCH PROBLEM

2001 Vauxhall Zafira • 103,000 miles

Hi, My problem started instantly. It feel like its running out of petrol. It will not pull under load car starts fine and will rev up ok. As soon as I let the clutch up in gear it starts to get boggy. It keeps making all four spark plugs go black and smell like petrol. When it goes boggy I get popping from the down pipe like ignition of unburnt petrol. The cat look like its not collapsed. It did have fault codes
0420
1405
0500
0130
Which I dont think are related as there from previous problems Iv since cleared them and they have not come back. Also egr is working fine.
iv done a live test and and dont have the knowledge to decipher it. I could email the file if you like.
