A RESTRICTED FUEL FILTER WILL PROHIBIT PROPER FUEL DELIVERY....CHECK THE FUEL FILTER OR POSSIBLE A WEAK FUEL PUMP...THE ENGINE MAY BE STARVING FOR FUEL AT HIGHER FUEL DEMANDS

There could be a couple of reasons. Yes a tune up would be nice. But my not fix the problem. If you are not losing acceleration on straight away but on hill, then it could be the torqe converter. Also have your MASS airflow sensor checked and air filter.
Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Get a fuel gauge and look for a port on the fuel rail for a port that looks like the valve on the tire. Screw it in and crank the car. You will have to call the part store to find out what pressure it is supposed to be. If there is low or eratic pressure the its the filter or pump

you have to eliminate several items
one at a time.
but it all comes down to three things air, fuel and fire.(spark)
disconect the gas line and see if the fuel pump is pumping at rated pressure you mayneed a gage for that, gas is dangerous be very careful dumping any amounts about, or disconect and see it squirt into a container ,again be careful. if you are confident that the streem of gas is strong. then it is not the fuel pump.
spark? The sensor for the spark plugs may be a pcm system which is a pulse hall effect sensor that sends a signal though a coil in the distributor. the steel in the coil may be getting rusty and swelling ( steel swells if it rusts ) the mettal plates in the center of the coil may be expanding and now are stretching the copper in the coil so now they are broken but just touching enough to run untill it gets to hot ( mettle expands when hot ) causing the hall effect sensor not to work propery all the time.
check the air cleaner for a proper filter to be clean.
mostly it is either fuel or spark.
