    If you're running lean that means there's too much air in the system. I'm willing to bet it's you EGR valve that's took a ****.

    I was having issues getting up past 60/65.
    This just happend Sunday.
    I changed the plugs yesterday, cleaned the MAF and PCV, and im getting a new fuel filter. An added some Fuel Injector cleaner.

    So far my CEL hasnt came back on.

    Let me know if you get your issue resolved.

    I have been told it may also be the following:
    Catalytic Converter
    02 Sensors
    Coil Pack / Plug Wires
