First, is you check engine light on? If so, then this is the place you need to start. AutoZone will scan your computer for free.
When you get the codes, write back and I'll help you from there.
As for your lack of power, this could be an ignition/fuel related issue, your exhaust could be clogged (CONVERTER), or there may be a mechanical problem with your engine.
If you aren't getting any power, then there's no reason your check engine light wouldn't come on except if it were a plugged exhaust. (Sometimes that'll produce a light, sometimes it won't)
But have your computer scanned either way. Sometimes the light will go off, but there'll still be stored codes in your computer.
