dirty injectors,fuel pump,stuck brakes???

My car this past weeks is very sluggish it feels like something is holding it back below 3000rpm and at around 2500rpm the car will bog bad the same feeling u get if fuel is shut off....It sounds as if the engine has to strain in order to accelerate, not in any huge sense, but just a little. Also, if I let off the gas, the car seems to slow down very fast, even if I do not touch the brake. This occurs at the same rate if I put the car into neutral...If i punch it i feel the car has to work alot harder then it use to. I have to drop it a gear and give alot more gas to climb hills now.

You really feel it in the lower gears in the lower rpms. i figured if it was the pump u would feel it in the higher rpms..I can stick spin the tires in 1,2 from a stop if i punch it

Ive replace the spark plugs, i pulled the negative battery terminal for 30 mins and i put a bottle of injector cleaner in yesterday, and i cleaned the air filter..
The dealership wanted 170$ to check my fuel pump even tho i still have warranty ...
Could my injectors be going on such a stock new car?
I have scangauges anything i can watch that might help

my Short Term Fuel Trim is 0 when off gas and all the way to -30 on gas
my long term is roughly the same

oh and im getting no codes

So took the car in to dealership 3 hours later they told me its a faulty fuel pressure regulator..does that seem right? it would explain the stumbling and the hard starts but what about the lack of power in lower rpms ?

I would not bring your car back to them. They'll try to replace something that doesnt exist on our cars....Don't let touch your motor..

I just replaced the fuel pump, spark plugs, and cleaned injectors on my wife's car and it still feels the same. Hers goes into limp mode and sometimes shuts off while running. It is throwing code p0301. Sorry to Jack your thread but any help??
