Check air filter and replace if needed.

Randall Casteel

The filter that's on it seems newer it's still mostly clean


Remove and take for a ride a see if it makes a difference. I have seen some air filter that look ok but are not.


Also maybe dirty fuel injectors add some Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.
