HELP! Ignorant not Stupid

Hello everyone. I'm new to the site and really need some help. I'm a female who doesn't know alot about cars and I have a 97 mustang that's right at 90,000 miles and is really running poorly. I just don't have the power or performance that I used to have and I need to know what to do to make it right. I do have regular oil changes and tuneups done but before I take it to the shop I need to know what I'm talking about so I won't get taken advantage of. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Please help me love my mustang again!! Thanks!

You may want to consider switching to a higher milage oil, like Valvoline MaxLife, or any oil that says it's recomended for cars over 75,000 miles. Or, when you get your oil changed again, get full synthetic or a synthetic blend. Something you could do your self is add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to you gas tank after your next fill up. You can get a bottle of that from Wal-mart.
Another thing...When you do take it to a shop, jus let them look at it, then get back on here, tell everyone what the mechanic said, and i'm sure someone on here can let you know what's needed and what's not
