One facelift V8s there can be occasional valve stem seal issues and failed valley pan coolant pipes. Check the condition of the water-cooled alternator. On diesel engines, a faulty ECU can cause overboost. Flat spots and a lack of power can be traced to cracked manifolds and faulty air mass sensors.
