I took off the muffler, and couldn't find a screen. I checked for flow and there is. I cleaned the filter too. slight improvement, but not much. I think its just about to "break"

Sometimes the exhaust port itself clogs up, did you take the whole exhaust can completely off and look at the port in the cylinder? Also, some filters don't cleanup real well. Some you can wash with degreaser or soap and water and air dry.Others you can blow out with air to a certain extent but might need replacement to get performance back. You probably know all this stuff anyway but not knowing you or your're mechanical ability I figured it was worth mentioning. As stated before though, if you do a lot of places and this being on its third year, it may be ready to calf, my echo's go about 2-3 years under heavy use before grenading.Goodluck. Oh yeah, like someone else said, a new plug may be a good idea.
