DAEWOO LANOS ENGINE PROBLEM

1999 Daewoo Lanos

Engine Performance problem
1999 Daewoo Lanos 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 128, 00 miles

The engine has little or no power. When started it will idle but won't produce enough power to move the car.
As it warms up the power returns in a small amount. The car will move slowly but if a strong demand is made by power steering it dies. Once moving it tops out in 1st gear at 5mph, 2nd 10 mph, 3rd maybe 15, 4th 20.
As the top speed in any gear is neared, the car begins to buck and heave with great lurches. Also the car has
1/4 tank of gas to go about 25 miles or about 8mpg.
Is the catalytic converter plugged? Help!
