change plugs, oil change, air filter change. make sure you use 5/30 oil. if it dosent change then try disconnecting the maf sensor (connected to the side of air box) as these sometimes give up around 80k, if the car runs better then you may of found the problem.


if this still dosent work then depending on the milage the CAT can collapse and this will cause rough running.

Isn't it better to replace the MAF sensor rather than disconnect it? (if money isn't the issue!)

Leaking power is such a wide statement.

If there are no noticable misfires or problems, you need to get it on a rolling road to check if it is really down on power or you have just got used to the car - the graph will also show where you are losing the power.

As already suggested though, usual service items are a good place to start changing bits....


What If There Were No Hypothetical Questions?

custom if you disconnect the maf on the zetecs it sometimes solves the problem, just saves you buying a new maf for 80 quid and finding out you don't need it.
