Check your oil stick first, your oil level could be too low,, air filter may need changing which means you need a tune up, or it could be your fuel pump.

When driving my 1997 Audi A 4 1.8t there is a loss of power around 3000 rpm, what could be causing the issue?

run the fault codes and look for a problem area in the vane actuator of the turbo
it could be a sensor problem or a MAP sensor problem
this is indicated by the pressures being generated or not generated by a turbo generating pressure from the throttle opening on acceleration or held at constant speed

My 99 Oldsmobile Alero started sputtering with and heater hose near firewall was leaking coolant Pulled over then half hour later drove back to house with no problems then car is parked and sputters when...

with the heater hose leaking and the engine missing I suspect an overheated engine from loss of coolant or pressure . It may be a blocked filter but I would expect a constant loss of power at rpm's.

Vios 2004 1.3e manula something happen to the engine i'm not sure is it the igniton coil or the gasoline filter (loss compression) 65000km.....

IF there is a compression loss then have a compression test done to determine if so and which piston . If it is just a miss then isolate each coil until you find the faulty one . If you feel that it is fuel have a fuel pressure test done to determine where the fault is.

Loss of power in acceleration

I would check the fuel pressure first.
If the engine was miss-firing the check engine light should be on.

What does the code p0457 for a 2005 ford sport trac mean?

check for a loose fuel cap or a rust hole at the top of the filler neck. causing a loss of pressure/vacuum.

P0457 - EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Fuel Filler Cap Loose/Off) A fuel tank pressure change greater than a minus (-) 7 inches of H 2 0 in 30 seconds has occurred after refueling; or there is excessive purge (fuel vapor) flow greater than 0.06 pounds per minute.
  • Fuel filler cap not installed on refueling (storing continuous memory DTC) and "check Fuel Cap" light may also be illuminated.
  • Fuel filler cap missing, loose or cross-threaded.
Check for missing fuel filler cap or integrity of the cap. If OK, clear continuous memory DTCs and re-initiate EVAP Emission Running Loss Monitor Drive Cycle.

Loss of power, stalling at stops and slows, codes P0300, P0107, P0105 and P0105. Will stall but when put into nuetral will start right up.

The symptoms and the codes you've given would indicate to me that you have a vacuum leak. Look for a loose a throttle body, loose, missing or damaged hoses, loose or missing intake manifold bolts or any other opening in the intake manifold.
P0105 - Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit Malfunction
P0107 - Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit Low Input
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
