Need help going crazy

Hope someone can help me figure out what’s going on with my car. It’s a 2015 gt with the performance package. It’s stock beside a jlt cold air intake with a tune for the intake. The car has 25,000 miles on it. The other day while leaving work the car had a weird feel to it. When I took off it felt like I lost most of my torque. The car shifts fine and revs fine but just doesn’t have the power behind it. The clutch also is engaging late. I have no bad smells or any slip in the clutch. Shifting gears are fine. I don’t know what could be causing it. I have tried to look online and I can’t find anyone with this problem. Help advise would be great.

From the title, I thought I might be able to help, but I'm not sure I can solve your actual problem. I am overqualified for helping people go crazy though... just ask my ex!

I smile a lot. It makes people wonder what I'm up to...

What kind of climate do you live in? Did it recently become hot and humid? Any change in altitude?

Man, I rarely need help going crazy but one it throwing any codes? If you don't have a reader, usually Autozone type places will hook you up for free. That can tell you a lot.

Have you toggled the engine into the "snow/rain" mode?

I am no mechanic, but i had similar issues in another car a long time ago. It was a sensor, can't remember which one. My bet is a sensor for air or fuel is bad. Could try to go to parts store and have them run a scan on the car. Other than that go to the dealer. Maybe check them out for cleaing too, throttle body, etc. Again, just thoughts from experience.

This may not help your sanity but is a brake caliper hanging up.

3 days and no activity from the OP. I guess it's fixed.
