Well this could be in your timing. As cars get some miles on them the timing chain stretches therefore causing you car to lose alot of power.So you may want to have your timing set on this car. Also I had a taurus that had a bad torque converter, and it lost alot of power on hills and under loads, also when i gunned the gas pedal. so try the timing first. Hopefully you dont have a bad head gasket or a cracked head these symptoms you are describing are all signs of head gaskets or blown heads

Check for vacuum leaks, make sure your PVC valve is operationa. Also be sure to take your car to a place such as autozone where they can do a detailed diagnostic test (usually free of charge) wich will help you further locate the problem..
PCV Valve usualy runs about 3 - 7 dollars, and is usually located on your valve cover attacthed to a vacuum line,
O2, and Fuel sensors may sometimes have adverse effects on engine performance.

What engine code is stored in the computer? You may have a bad TPS (throttle postioning sensor), or a bad O2 sensor. Auto Zone can retrieve the code for you, and tell you what sensor it is related to.
