2003 V6 Lag in acceleration?
Hello, I'm new to this site and could use some help spinning off some ideas. I try to all the work I can my self unless it's a big problem. I work at an AutoPlus, parts are not a problem. My v6 has just hit 190,000 miles I bought it at about 148,000 miles. This started about a week Just recently in the past few days or so and it's gotten worse I feel like I'm receiving lag when accelerating from stop or just slowly accelerating while I'm cruising around 1000 rpms to 2000 rpms if I floor the gas no lag at all... I've had the torque converter, rear main seal replaced in the trans around 150,000 miles. The trans fluid replaced around that time as well. I bought a cold air intake from bbk and put it on around 155,000 miles went to work today and got k&n recharge kit followed the instructions even got some gum cutter cleaned the cai itself. Put it all back together going to work an hour later same problem. I never did a chip or anything but I've had this set up for over 30,000 miles no issues? Any idea what it could be I've read anything from an o2 sensor, to chip it, to replace throttle body, to fuel filter?
Please help also another issue no idea if it's related when I'm going from stop to accelerate its automatic so I can't tell what gear but around 35 miles per hour it will get stuck and not want to go down In rpms unless I punch the gas or let off for a little.. This issue started about 4 months ago
When I say lag I mean actual lag like you experience in a video game kind of feeling. Slowly push on gas pedal car feels like it's moving backwards and forwards while accelerating slowly if I floor it can't feel anything wrong
Also I filled the tank and added Lucas fuel injector cleaner in it
Plugs and wires replaced at 150,000 miles due to misfire.
