Loss of power? How many miles? Plug, plug wire or ignition coil(if seperate poles) would be my guess.

Sounds like a clogged catalytic converter, perhaps. Car should be scanned for codes.

Engine light is on and the car will not accelerate, the tail pipe shakes and puffs


Check the trouble codes, and check that the catalytic converter is not plugging the exhaust up. If you bang on it and you hear rattling, it is probably bad. One way to verify is to run the engine with the converter disconnected from the exhaust. If it runs better, the converter is bad.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish


If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.

Engine light on 2002 VW Jetta


sorry , but no good news, if you are using a fair amount of oil it has most likely reclogged the converter. unbolt the pipe just before converter and run car, if it seems to run better then it is time for a set of rings and another new converter

Car engine light on light blinking shaking over due for oil chang


Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.
