    Could it be a slipping clutch if manual transmission or transmission issue if auto trans? Your car has a replaceable fuel filter left rear of engine compartment, a little difficulty to replace. Ignition coils can fail to and short under load. It's hard to guess without being able to do some diagnostic tests.
