how many miles does it have? could be fuel filter is clogged (change) needs new spark plugs, is there a check engine light on? if yes take to a chain auto parts store they usually test for free, does engine race and car goes slow, could be transmission needs new filter/fluid or needs repair. Standard transmission, clutch is worn out, starting point for you with so little information to work with
Sure sounds like a lifter is clogged or a valve is hanging partially open.
Think about oil changes. Some have used kerosean (sp) in the oil for a few hundred miles before changing it - just to clear out the lifters and clean the oil feed channels and valve guides. Just don't drag race with a cleaner/thinner in your oil pan.....
You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.
