I just got an 01 Tribute given to me for my wedding present. The truck has 220000km on it. It is in great shape, but just lacks the power that I remember it having when my family first bought it in 01.

Was wondering if there is anything I can do to try and restore some of the get up and go it once had. Oil Change? Spark Plugs, tranny fuild/diff fluid change? It has the K&N air filter, maybe clean it.

Anything else I can do? Suggestions, ideas, thoughts? Truck is the ES-V6 3.0L

If it was mine, I'd probably have a compression test done on each cylinder when you pull the sparkplugs.

Absolutely!That is what I would do first before searching into all the electronic sensors, catalysts and exhaust etc.

I was also going to say catalysts...but new spark plugs and MAF would also help!
