250 Pursuit ute got no power

I have a 250 Pursuit ute that seems to have lost a lot of mumbo. If i flatten my foot from a standing start it won't even spin the wheels it is auto. It seems to run ok no misses etc and goes ok at highway speeds. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong. I'm not to keen on taking it to my ford dealer as they don't have the best reputation for trouble shooting. Any ideas no matter how silly they seem would be greatly appreciated.

Slipping Auto? Does it 'flare' at any speed? You may also have busted the LSD, which might not be hooking up correctly.

Other than that - FIIK.

Might be in limp home mode, is it using heaps of fuel ???

Somebody hasnt done a service on it lately and left a rag in the intake, wont be the first time this has happened. At least it wont get sucked through to the throttle body like a I6 can and jam the throttle open.

Personally if it is under warranty I would take it back to your dealer, if your local dealer is a joke, go to another dealer!

JCV8 I'm fairly sure its not a problem with the auto all gears work fine no flaring good changes etc. If the lsd was stuffed wouldn't one wheel spin like all hell ? It is a problem that is very noticeable down low.

BOF might be right here, disconnect the MAF(Mass Air Flow, meter) and take it for a run, I know pre AU worked OK without them hooked up, they don't go as well and a slight hesitation but a driver that takes it easy never notices that it is any different. (Seen a customerís car like that) If there is no difference, you have a chance that that is the problem, if it goes worse, well you won't be sure at all.

Still there are too many variables, you may have not noticed something that would stick out like dogs balls to someone else.
