CAR HAS NO POWER

2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 125,000 miles

My pt cruiser just had a new timing belt. About 4 weeks ago. Now just dogging down. It is a stick 2.4. Gags out at 2800 rpm. Can barely get up hill. Moves on freeway. No smell or clutch slippage. What could it be

Do you have a check engine light on?

Lack of acceleration, chugging, hesitating********, bogging, misfiring etc. Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
