Its the computer learning and remembering your driving habits. Try pulling fuse 47 and see what happens.

Pull it for 10 to 15 minutes and you should be good to go. Don't know about the oil life issue you mentioned.

The funny thing about this computer learning thing (and I know it does exist), I have never experienced any noticeable symptoms with my basically stock car.
I drive pretty easy most of the time but whenever I gun it, it takes off like a bullet.
Maybe it's the gunning it that makes the difference.

Also, what is your mileage looking like, what type of oil and stuff have you been using, have you been changing your air filter, etc? All of these little things can contribute to a poor performing car. Also, maybe the car is getting bad gas and might need some fuel system cleaning. It could be many things. Luckily, some of these things can be cheap to try/check.

It could be the oil that is being used, becomes complete crud after a certain amount of use. Again, could be many things.

So are you saying that after the oil change the problem goes away?

Yea, not much then that could be an issue besides the car putting itself in a "Granny" mode. Because usually, after a few drives the car will relearn or adjust to the style of driving. So if you drive conservatively for a week, that is plenty of time for it to adjust all of the fuel/air/spark ratios for the best gas mileage instead of performance.

Try pulling fuse 47 and check back in if it changes anything. You could always try something else like Royal Purple oil and filter. My car has been running like a champ with that.

You could also disconnect the battery for an hour or so but this will also reset everything else. Like radio presets, avg mpgs (if you are tracking it), etc. This is the method I used to use on my old 3000GT because that thing ALWAYS needed work.

Is this for the fuses on the inside or the ones under the hood?

Under the hood. There's also a mod out there for splicing in a relay that cuts the power to the circuit controlled by fuse 47 each time the car is turned off. In effect, it's a fuse pull each time you park the car.

EDIT: Here's the website I used for the build: http://paddedwall.org/2012Mustang/Transmission.aspx

The implication is that it happen more than once, which also implies that it was okay after the oil change.
Was that true or not?

Even though synthetic should get you to 10k miles, I still change my oil every 5-7k. Even though I use Royal Purple. I never like waiting till the last second when it comes to my Daily Driver. $70 for an early oil change is alot better then thousands for a brand new engine+install.

I do mine every 4-5k(~10 weeks), with the motorcraft blend. I'm usually in the high 60% range at change.

Just to satisfy my curiosity...Did your cars' power come back after the oil changes, as you implied?
