Has anyone had this or is it my imagination. Example, tonight my car was running well, and powerful, pickup from standing start was good. But after I had to wait in the line at the Hungry Jacks drive through in drive for a while, when I went to go out into the street and drive away the car was sluggish and it felt as though it weighed 4 tonne, for the rest of the way home. Like power was suddenly limited to 100KW or something. Thing is I think it always does this. Even if I'm at a red light for too long, she'll go weak?

Any ideas or am I whacked?

Yeah I don't have a clue to why it happens. As I said previously, it feels like 4 tonnes after a long wait in drive, hot or cold.
