Go to Autozone/Advance Auto and have the codes pulled from the computer, they will do it for free. Do not buy anything yet, come back here and tell us the codes we will help you sort them out.

A faulty fuel pressure regulator comes to mind. My car had that symptom once. Left black vapor trail and loss of power. This is only a first attempt guess, but it's fun to see if you might be right.
