750-950 is whats called for,, (RPM) if it runs fine while holding the idle at a higher rate,, adjust the rate a bit higher ( changing of the filter is always a good idea )

Loss of power with check engine light on

it's a matter of because the check engine light came on and at the same time you have loss of power this indicates that the vehicle went into limp in mode. the only way to figure out why is to do a diagnostic on it so you don't spend hours trying to figure out the exact problem by guessing and replacing what you might think it is. there is a multitude of reasons for loss of power but the check engine light is a good indicater that the ecm threw a code or more. contrary to popular belief it is not an idiot light especially on a hybrid like the prius. if you loosen a line it will most likely stall not just lose power. the vehicles are pressure sensitive and would throw a code. you have an array of sensors just for the fuel system alone. if it were bad filters you would have rough idle ,hard starting ,or stalling while stopped. none of which you mentioned.

2006 4.7 engine runs rough stalls out

If there is a check engine light, take it to a place like autozone or napa, they will scan it for free. However if its doggy and stalling without a check engine light, check your fuel pressure. Newer vehicles are very finiky about requirig the proper ammount of fuel pressure to operate. If its low check your fuel filter, dirty filters restrict flow. if you replace your filter and still low pressure, then I hate to say it but you have a faulty fuel pump (EXPEN$IVE)

Why is my grand 2004 grand cherochee idoling rough

The idle air control valve (IAC) may be stuck or failing. This solenoid-type device controls the airflow into the engine at idle. It is fed control input signals from the engine's computer. Over time, the IAC valve may become dirty from EGR gases and carbon, etc. It may have a worn pintle (valve head) or the return spring may be weak or broken, causing a rough idle or even stalling from an over-rich fuel/air mixture. The second thing to have checked is the throttle position sensor.TPS. These devices will "flag" a fault on your vehicle's onboard OBD-II computer, which a decent code reader/scanner can display and clear. Third, a dirty throttle body housing/venturi can cause rough idling and poor response. A special cleaner is needed to remove oil and carbon residues from the specially-coated inner surfaces of the throttle body. Fourth; you may have a Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) that might be failing/malfunctioning. Some vehicles use these instead of the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor, which you may have. These sensors need to be checked and verified that they are functioning properly. Fifth; check/change your vehicle's fuel filter, and verify proper/adequate fuel pump pressure and flow performance. Don't run your vehicle below 1/4 tank of fuel...doing this sharply reduces the life and cooling of the in-tank electric fuel pump. These are not cheap, or easy to replace!

It sounds like all it needs is a good tune-up. I would check the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter and fuel filter.

Where is the fuel filter on a Saturn Vue 2004?

It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.
