While driving the engine made loud noise like backfire,stopped. Tried to start again, but it just sounds like it is choking and has no power to move.

sounds lik catalytic converters is stopped up. one way to tell is to relive exsot preacher by lossening the pipe from the manifold or take the oxygen sensors out and see how it runs. allso you can have someone rev the motor up while someone holds there hant over the tall pipe and see how much exsot is coming out. compare it to someone else car.

While driving approx. 25 mph, bang and vibration like a flat tire quickly followed by horrible rotten egg smell. started stalling out and vibrating very hard couldn't get over 40 mph.

It sounds like a plugged catalytic converter. It's kind of like a muffler type thing on your exhaust system. It burns all the unburned fuel that your engine sends through the exhaust for emission control. After a while they can get plugged up & need to be replaced. It's not letting exhaust out so it's choking your engine.=vibration, smell & backfire. You might be able to limp it to a service garage.. Save yourself a tow charge. Good luck

My car doors and truck want open with the push of the button from the key ring. The worst is that after I reach 45 mph my car starts choking and shaking. I have to speed up to 50mph to stop it from...

I had a similar problem, when i would press the gas pedal down X%, the car would shake, and kinda do a "Pop pop pop pop pop" noise.. (NOT a backfire, like a light popping noise), ended up being a tiny air leak in a hose.. Fixed that.. 6 mo. later, a gasket in the throttle body had sprung a leak (Leak of air pressure), and the car is doing this again.. feels like its gonna stall, and does it when i accelerate fast, or go over 60.. This is all because jaguar uses digital gas pedals (VS "Drive by wire"). if this is it, its a easy, cheap fix.
Just start the car, and put your ear towards the engine (With the hood up.. watching out for moving parts), listen for a hissing noise.. Your car should not hiss at all.

Problems during excelaration act's like it' going to cut out during excelaration seems like maybe a fuel problem it seems like it might be miss firing

It sounds like low fuel delivery, check the fuel filter, if it is after the pump and you can disconnect the line to the motor put the end in a container and get someone to start the motor, the fuel should spurt strongly. Beyond this you need to check the lines to the tank.
