I've got a few ideas, Check tire pressure's, check wheel bearings, check to make sure the brakes aren't dragging, run lighter oil in it. If its not running well it could be a plugged cat. Does it have the 5.2 or the 4.7? any check engine lights? How did you run the seafoam through it in the tank or in the brake booster?

she runs like shes new.. the breaks are fine.. tires are good.. its the 318 5.2 i run it through the brake booster works better.. i also run 89 octane fuel .. the wheel bearing are new put them in about a year ago
