The exhaust on the the car got loud and then it started running like it wasn't getting any enough power power and took a long time to accelerate over 25mph. After a couple days now it won't go over 15mph and the service engine light keeps flashing.

If the service light is flashing, it sounds like you have an engine misfire. Have the computer scanned to determine what is causing the light to come on. Most parts stores will do it for free. Also, check to make sure the catalytic converter isn't plugged.
