You may be building excessive back pressure due to a clogged up catalytic converter on your exhaust system. Can you hear any rattling under the car?

I haven't then again my car makes lots of noise due to an accident i had and there's something under the car i need to get fixed, so i cant tell the difference. sorry

If you can get it to an auto parts store, they can retrieve the codes for you with an OBD-II Scanner. That would help us a lot to be able to diagnose the problem. Once you get the codes, post them on here in a new thread and we can get you some help.
