what do the plugs look like , air filter ? Scan for codes and get the definitions , does it start and idle ? See if the catalytic is clogged rev the engine and see if a healthy blast of exhaust comes out the tailpipe . If it doesn't start check for proper spark , fuel pressure and see if the injectors are firing .

Yes it starts but when i push on the gas it wont gi very fast and it back fires
