Hi

In my experience, no. Not normal.

My 2003 4.0 had full power up until 195000 with years of regular maintenance.

I would check the condition of a few things to see if the power may be resurrected

All the usual maintenance stuffs...new oil and filter, new air filter, new fuel filter, check the MAF sensor, check the plugs and wires, check the coils.

I once had a little hesitation in my rig, and when I ran through this list and changed the fuel filter and cleaned the MAF sensor, VROOM VROOM!!! Easy peasy.

Deeper, you could check compression. Lower compression could mean internal chaos. Cool thing is, you can find a compression tester cheap like 25-30 bucks at Harbor Freight or Amazon.

O2 sensors are not out of the question. I'm sure I've missed a few things that others may chime in with.

As far as mileage...I do get 14-16 in the city, so you're right there, but you no go-go. This might help you get your go-go back.
