Hi,
Check the coolant level in the expansion tank first, no coolant then it sounds like the head gasket. If the coolant is ok then it sounds like it's the catalytic converter, the reduction in power is where the debris from the cat blocks the tail pipe / silencer.

Congratulations, you just blew the head gasket. 4 maybe 5 thousand dollars. Get it done for $2500 and chances are you'll have to get it done again.

Only take it to someone who knows how to work on the Vanos system.

it could be the EGR valve or Mass airflow (MAF), you can check if its MAF by disconnecting it for a test run and see if it loses power then. do make sure you connect it back after checking.

Thermostat is probably bad. If when it is cold out your heat doesn't get very warm then it is the thermostat for sure.

Hi ,
It sounds like you lost the belt that runs the power steering pump and the water pump and the alternator. Look under the hood at that belt.
