ACCELERATION DROPS QUICKLY AFTER DRIVING F

1998 Ford Taurus

Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I was driving back from the bank when all of a sudden as I started to accelerate I heard a rattling sound black smoke poured out of my exhaust and the cars speed dropped quickly. When I put pushed on the accelerator more smoke and the rpms shot but speed climbed by 1 mile per minute and if I came to a complete stop for too long the engine would cut out.
