Car has 190,000 and has just recently become sluggish on power. Will not go up hills past 40 mph, Won't go faster than 70 mph on flat roads, stumbles a little on acceleration.Had an EGR code P0401. Took the EGR valve/throttle body off and did a thorough cleaning. Changed spark plugs and wires. Cleaned MAF. Changed valve cover gasket/boot rings. Changed PCV. What are some problems that may be causing this?
