If you do not have a check engine light on, have exhaust flow checked for a possible plugging cat. converter. Symptoms: bogging down on hard acceleration, loss of power and failing to accelerate on inclines and sometimes rough running condition in idle at stoplights. Exhaust will back up and 'choke the engine'. May cause o2 sensor codes and egr code.

As stated, have it checked for exhaust restrictions, fuel pressure, etc. Feel free to call me if you have other questions
