Power loss

Ok.... After about 3000rpm I have about 50% power(if that). I just changed air filter. I need to change PCV valve. I was told sludge in the valve cover could cause this also. I took the valve cover off and it looked ok. Could I add some marvel mystery oil to my oil? Will that help it clean up? Are either the sludge or the PCV valve causing my problem? Could it be that peices from my catalytic converter are clogging my exhaust? Please list some things I could check. Thanks

I wouldnt add marvel to your oil, only to do a comp checkwith it, which it sounds like it would be a good idea for you to do. How many miles are on it? what engine? The PCV could have sludge in them and that does cause engines to run wierd. Pieces from the cat clogging your exhaust? not very likely. When is the last time you did a tune up? Plugs. plug wires? cap and rotor?

I did the check engine light trick and it said O2 sensor was reading lean fuel mixture. I bought a new o2 so we'll see if that helps.

Well I took the O2 sensor back after getting a new flowmaster exhaust form my friends shop. Turns out the cat had broken and turned sideways blocking the airflow. The new exhaust cost $53... 60cents more than the O2 sensor
