Engine loses power for a second then regains full power

When driving the engine will loses all power for a second then come back strong. It does not get worse when the fuel tank is low. I replaced the plug wires and plugs recently. They looked in pretty good shape when replaced. It seems to be worse when driving at a constant speed.

How did you check the battery? This needs to be done with a load test to be sure. Most car parts places will do this free. Battery leads OK? Not corroded? Also have the altenator checked for proper voltage out.
