If you have had a bad enough problem with the fuel filter, and it is not the fuel pump I would have to say it is the injectors. If your car is fuel injected there could be dirt in the injectors in which case they will need to be replaced. The problem is you can flush the whole fuel system except for the fuel injectors themselves. Though I am not sure how to check them myself, a mechanic could tell you if this is the problem in minutes. I cant say for sure if this is your problem but I have a 79 corrolla and it is doing the same thing and since I have replaced almost the whole fuel line except for the injectors themselves this is what I am leaning towards. Good luck!

I would change the trans flter, trans fluid, and have the linkage on the trans adjusted.

Check the oil again. If the level is higher than it was after you changed it and/or is pasty again (kind of like milkshake) then you have coolant getting into it--most likely through a leaking or blown head gasket.

A bad PTS might be the culprit...

TCS warning light is on. Check engine light is on. Reduced engine power light is on. the accelerator wont work when pressed all the time. when revving it up it will not rev over 3k in neutral.

There are literally thousands of codes that can cause the check engine light to come on. There is no way to guess why yours is on based on your symptoms. Many auto part stores will scan your engine computer and give you a print out of the codes for free, unless you live in CA. We would need to know what these codes are to give you an accurate reason you are having issues. FYI, modern engines won't rev past 3000-3500 rpm in neutral. This is to prevent engine and torque converter damage.

My check engine light went on yesterday. Today it was on again and the car started losing power at random times. I'd be in second gear accelerating and the rpms would fall for 30 seconds then pick back...

Since your check engine light is on, you need to take it to Autozone and get a code. They will read it for free and tell you what the computer found. This will give you an idea of where the problem is. Sounds like the engine is low on compression. You might want to check your timing belt or chain. It may be slipping. Also, a simple clogged fuel filter could cause this as well. Since it has 82K miles, if you haven't ever changed the spark plugs or coils, they may need changed. If you decide to do this, go ahead and change the wires and the cap. In all honesty, this could be the reason for your loss of power. If you can, get the code read though. This will save you time and perhaps a lot of money in the end. Once you know what the computer found, you will know where to start at. What I wrote is just posssibilities because many things can cause your car to loose power like you states. Also, it gives you heads up if a mechanic tries to make some money off of you. I hope this helps you and I wish you the best of luck on your car. Take care.

**NEW** (End of paragraph) 2005 DODGE STRATUS 2.4L DOHC -X (problem-check engine light on-code:P0016-camshaft/crankshaft sensor) WHAT HAPPENED: TIMING BELT BROKE WHILE DRIVING UNDER 35 MPH. HAD A CHEAP...

Well what i know is when the timing belt breaks the Valves get bent for most of the time like 99% And i don't know if that Mechanic checked the valves or not because if they are bent then the valves wont close properly as it should and the car wont have power and the RPM will be low even if you accelerate. and what i can say is take your car to an autopart store Like Pep boys or autozone, and ask them to scan it and erase the code and see if it back again and they should scan it for free. Good luck

Acceleration issue

Do you have any engine codes? It may be throttle position senso. It may also be good idea to buy new fuel filter.
Also you may want to get a multi-meter and check your fuel pump relay.
If you have a tester, you should also check fuel pressure.
If you have a check engine light on, you should have the codes read because it will pinpoint exact problem

Have you checked fuel pressure at idle and 3k TO 4K RPMS? I once took a crown vic to a local dealer, wanted $1500 for new cats. I did a fuel pressure test, 15 lbs at idle, 0-5 at 3K RPMS and went to 0 lbs. when punched accelerator. Was a $6 fuel filter.
