Check engine oil is correct grade and has been changed regularly at least every 8k miles. Vti solinoid valve filters can clog and they do not like wrong grade or old oil which stops proper vti operation and causes power loss.

More than likely be ur timing control solenoid valve. Sits at back of engine on the drivers side. Could prob get away with cleaning it and changing ur oil.
