Sounds like engine trouble to me. I assume you've checked the oil level and condition and thery're good.

It could be engine related but could it be an exhaust leak, pinging due to bad gasoline? It is best to get this checked out as soon as possible as more damage can occur if not attended too. These are usually a very strong engine.
