Power lose

Every few days after driving for about 30mins or so i could stop in traffic and when i try to take off...I have very little power and have to press alot harder on the accelerator just to move forward....then after the next stop at traffic its back to normal again....Any ideas? I only have the car 3 Months. Its an Altezza RS200 year 2000 manual 6 speed. Should i bring it back to the garage?

Thank you for reading this message

Has it been serviced recently ? Has this just started happening and it was fine before, or have you only just bought this car and it's been doing this from the start ?

It started happening about a month ago....the garage said that they serviced the car.....But im not sure i beleive them

Don't try cleaning the spark plugs ! At least, not with a metal brush, it'll ruin them. I presume you haven't got the engine check light coming on, on the dash, or any other warning lights ?

Did the problem start happening after the service or before ? If it happened after servicing I would suspect something hasn't been put back properly. Check there aren't any hoses/cables that look like they're not plugged in.

No warning lights of any kind. I bought the car from a garage, they said that they serviced it before giving it to me....maybe i should get it serviced myself
