It sounds like you have a problem which is causing the engine to enter limp mode. Most of the time that is caused by misfiring codes being set.
You say you bought the car a year and a half ago but only started to drive it recently?
If that is the case you likely need to get the fuel system flushed out, replace the filter and put in new fuel. Old fuel does not burn well.
