Ive noticed recently my cars been laggy, like if im slowing down it'll feel like the rpms are just hard to like.....get up

what could this be?
it shifts fine so it aint transmission
it's an auto btw

it has about 100K Miles on it. could it be idle control valve, but that wouldnt make much sense cause it's while im driving

or o2 sensor
if it's o2 sensor needs cleaning, anyone got instructions on how to clean it?

thx

Get the fault memories check before you do anything this should point you in the right direction. Ask for the printout so you can check on the fault numbers
