have your mechanic check to see if there is a dirty fuel filter along the gas/fuel line from the gas/fuel tank to the carburettor/injector. It may so happen that there is yet one fuel filter that has been left hidden and never changed even though you have been carrying out routine service and maintenance as at when due in all these while.
as a shortcut, you can also consult the manufacturer to find out how many fuel filters are installed along the fuel/gas line please.

My was doing the same thing, it was an EGR valve and a misfire on the #2 cylinder which required a new spark plug and a coil pack

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

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.
