lately the car doesn't seem to be takin off at all. like going up hills and even off the start it seems to be just draggin. the tac also has a few "flat spots" in it. such as between 2500-3000rpm it seems to slow down a bit then pick back up. but not just different times and places also. its weird. any suggestions?? i hvae a 99 2.8Q with tiptronic. i run 93 octane (started using that about 3 months ago after readin a thread on here stating thats the best to use) and use 5w-30 syntec blend oil. thanks

Every run fuel injector cleaner? How many miles are on the car?

Might be time for new plugs or a fuel filter.
