Not sure I have solution to your problem, but
1) Try checking for vacuum /air leaks on the inlet manifold and air intake system.
2) Check all manifold nuts / air hose clamps are not loose.

Sounds as if your catalytic converters are plugged up. It's not a cheap repair, if you do it right. You have to replace the 'H' pipe, which contains the converters. That pipe may set you back 5 or 6 hundred bucks!
An emergency fix (though not legal) is to remove the existing pipe and with a long steel rod, bust out the guts of the converters. You have to shake out the contents after you bust them up so it's necessary to have the pipe off the car.
If you want to test and make sure that this is the problem, you can disconect the pipes from the exhaust pipes coming down from the engine without removing them from the car. Start the engine and try to rev it up, without the converters connected. If it revs like a 'racecar', you have probably found your problem. Good luck! Dave

On most cars there are small plastic clips that keep the bars inside the door attached. These clips can jump off if someone uses a slim jim or coat hangar on the door, or possibly just fatigue over time. Not a costly fix, the clips are anywhere between a few cents to maybe four or five bucks, its the labor that will be expensive. Shouldn't take someone who knows what they are doing more than an hour. A semi-experienced person close to two hours.
