Simply because you are in a higher gear accelleration will be slower. I sometimes have the same feeling, which immediately disappears when I floor it in 5th and notice I outaccellerate most other cars with ease. > At speeds of above 60mph in 5th gear the acceleration seems to be > really slow, no extra power to overtake etc. Try timing your car. 50mph to 75mph should take around 9 seconds in 4th and 12 seconds in 5th. If it's significantly slower there may be something wrong. > I have read a bit on this forum about the MAF sensor. Might this be a > problem? Could very well be. Powerloss is a sign of a failing sensor. Mark
