Welcome to the forum.

As far as the diesel effect, I'd probably start with a simple tune up, service, air filter (etc.), and check/replace the vacuum lines (as needed). I know little about the 4 bangers, but often it's a timing issue or vacuum leak that can cause that. So start with the simple stuff first.
Just my $.02
Good luck. Wink
