Having engine power problems with my 1996 Ef futura have replaced leads and plugs new exhaust and cat fuel filter thermo n housing but my car seems to struggle to reach 60ks n up any and if it gets to that speed it's a long time rather then the quick normal to drive from stationary it takes a good 2-3 ks before it reaches speed of 60ks then struggles to go any faster or takes a fair time to reach the targeted speed have checked the accelerator cable and there is no play am at a loss to what else it could be

Do you

As I do all my own work on the car is it something I can fix or is it something that needs specific timing equipment

When I went over the car after buying looking at (door boot seals bushes things like that ) it seemed to me it had been sitting for awhile due to the built up of spiderwebs and spiders in and on and under the car
