The car used to be quite peppy, but now it is a struggle to get it going to a good speed. When I press on gas the engine starts racing, but not much accleration. Except for this lack of power everything seems to be OK. In particular:
1) no starnge noises or smells
2) no problem starting or idling
3) no service engine light on now - it was on for one day a couple a weeks ago, just after I had a fuel injector cleaned

I can get the car going to upper 70's - but slowly. After driving for awhile at that speed it seems a bit better, but looses speed on tiny uphill climb
