How long ago was the last tune up? Could it be a case of bad Fuel? If its not throwing in check engine light codes, then i would assume that maybe the fuel wasn't all that good, try some octane booster or fuel treatment of some sort to help clean/clear it up. Hope this helps

SOURCE: loss of power feels like it has a governor on. 3000 rpm and only

the service engine light means one of the sensors are bad or the idle control or even the throttle position sensor , these will cause your symptoms
you will need to check the code which will tell you exactly what has went bad and needs to be replaced
hope this info is worth a fixya , since everything else hurts our scoring , and if you need any more help I'll be glad to help

SOURCE: lancer mivec 1.6 loses power

Check your oil pressure. Common problem to all 2nd gen MIVEC engine is in its oil sump. A dent could restrict the flow of the engine oil and will cause the engine pressure to drop whenever the MIVEC starting to kick. A low pressure means that the MIVEC system will not activate, hence the low power and no MIVEC "sound".

SOURCE: sluggish acceleration from low rpm feels

goto walmart and get wynn's signature engine tuneup(8$) and put in your engine and run for 100 kms then have a oil change see the difference.

You will need to have the fuel pressure monitored under a load with a special tool and also drive it for a while and see if the check engine light comes on, if it does have the system scanned and diagnose the codes received.

sounds like an egr valve problem, pull the egr valve out of the intake (2 8mm bolts and pry out with a "ladyslipper" style pry bar, it it is covered with thick soot then this is probably your problem, this problem will often not trigger a code
