LOSS OF POWER

2001 Volkswagen Jetta • 259,544 miles

I have a sudden loss of power, as in no acceleration. It almost dies at an idle. The exhaust was glowing red where you can start to see it when peering under the car. And it was shaking a lot as well. It starts fine. And this wasn't gradual at all. Out of the blue after stopping at a light it wouldnt accelerate. 2001 vw jetta 1.8t and there is a faint smell of something
