fairmont probs

well when i got my fairmont the timing was badly out, resulting in it bogging down badly, not responsive, less powerful, and it took a shitload of a stomp to make it drop to the lowest gear u could and then sometimes it wouldnt anyway eg. at 50 tromp it and it only goes 2 second, so i retimed it, ****en kicked, response, power it nailed and now ive noticed it starting to loose responsiveness again, wont drop first sometimes or second at higher speed, although i may have had a few bad batches of fuel, and it pings sometimes, but should the fuel make a diff with the auto's kicking down or not, im running 91 at the moment but the last tank of 91 seemed fine, but it nailed harder with 98, What the ****???

anyone have any idea's thanks? maybe i advanced it too far and the computer is shitting it self, sometimes it goes better and sometimes not, its temperemental as...

only mods, exhaust, electric fans
