Yup. There is really no need for platinum plugs. Plain auto lite copper cores work great.

Maybe, did they say anything else? Is your engine warming up fully? Check your timing. Any check engine lights?

You might not be getting full ignition if you're losing power. Check the power output at the alternator and Battery. Then maybe check spark plugs and move on from there.
