FIRST you must use ONLY EUROPEAN FULLY SYNTHETIC OIL called LONG LIFE -03 oil,or the main sensos can clog up with soot, sludge, wax, and TAR. Try cleAning the THROTTLE BODY and PCV HOSES With AMSOIL POWER FOAN to remove any of these harmful unwanted additions. You should be on your way! ALSO use DENSO TWIN TIP IRIDIUM spark pugs in there to gain more power and exhaust life! I LOVE PENNZOIL PLATINUM or EURO cause ot comes with a 500,000 mile additional warranty against engine damages
