ive just drove home from work, and noticed a problem on my 9000 cds 1990, the engine has developed a power loss at 4500 rpm, idles lovely, and great acceleration, but as soon as load applied and rpm's reach 4500, power loss and sounds like it's running rough, let the rpm's drop to 4000, and runs great, back to 4500 powewr loss. please help, any advice will be appreciated

cheers
