    We did a complete tune up. I also found a couple of vacuum leaks, which we repaired. But yes, new cap.rotor,plugs,fuel& air filters. Run more smooth, but still no uphill power.

Of coarse it does. The battery was probably okey. The Alternator has nothing to do, with starting a vehicle,but the solenoid on the starter does.
Pull the starter and put on a new solenoid.

Losing power when I accelorate.


Fuel filter is the main culprit when you lose power going uphill. Going level or downhill means that the engine doesn't have to work all that hard and doesn't demand much fuel, so a partially clogged filter can usually flow enough to allow the car to run smoothly. Going uphill requires signficantly more fuel, and if the filter is clogged up, it won't be able to flow enough fuel. This will bog the car down and cause you to lose speed. Change your fuel filter.

Stalls at low speed when in cruise control


You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!
