my car cant accelerate much in comparison to last year. Last year i could do 150-160 km/h on highway and now it struggle to stay at 110 km without tachometer going to 3.5-4k on automatic.

my car is a 2012 Mitsubishi lancer 2.0 automatic @109,800 km

Im not sure if this is what caused it, I did some highway travelling a few months ago abouty 800-900km with cruise control so im not sure if that affected my transmission.

All regular maintenance is done, 0 20 oil every 8k km or 1yr, rotate tires, only use gas from 1 gas station, (i dont fill up from anywhere). Other than the acceleration problem ive never had to repair it. The previous owner just changed the trans fluid at 60k km and nothing else. all original fluids in there. Thanks

OBDII scan for DTCs, surprising sometimes what Codes are thrown.

change fuel filter first, if not that, pressure test the fuel pump to see if it's weak. If not that, pressure test the catalytic converter to see if it's clogged
