comment Mazda 3 on acceleration drops engine power
Hello. I have changed the spark plugs, but the problem still remains. I'm now running the car on 98 petrol and it again became slow and engine is operating unstably. Also i got a higher consumption (it was about 10.4l/100km on 95, now it is 10.9l/100km)

comment Mazda 3 on acceleration drops engine power
I bought a car in November 2011 and since then i was using 98 petrol, because with it the car was more faster :) The spark plugs were replaced in December, but problems started to appear later in January. I will check the plugs anyway tomorrow and maybe replace with new to be sure.

I forgot to mention one thing, don't know it may be related to that. When i fuel up with 98 petrol, the car becomes not faster, but significantly loses power - pressing gas pedal makes rpm rise, but acceleration is slow.

Thanks, I will them. Is there something specific i should look at after removing spark plugs? Like measure the gap or rust or something like that?
