If I accelerate slowly my auto is fine. If I push the accelerator down fast, of to the floor, the auto lurches a few times and dies. I just put in a new fuel filter to resolve but to no avail.

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Air conditioner stops when i accelerate rapidly

The air cond compressor is supposed to stop, but only if the gas pedal is pushed to the floor.
If it is cutting off and the pedal is not all the way down, you could have a problem with the throttle position sensor.
Cutting off during hard acceleration gives you a few more horsepower.

The 1995 Grand Am was GM's worst nightmare. At 120,000 the transmission is going to just blatantly fail on you w/out notice. Problems with this make and model is if it was created between 1995-96 the transmission problems are goin to start. Even if you swap the crankshaft sensor, ignition module, and coils. I had one go at the mileage i just submitted. The computer also has malfunctions. It is indeed time to rid your vehicle, Sorry. Thnx 4 using :-)

Attach a diagnostic computer to the leads on your engine.
Check the codes to confirm that the onboard computer is choosing to shift under the correct conditions.

Or, get your local Dodge dealer (before they go bankrupt) to run the computer-diagnosis.

Car lurches and bucks, rpms erratic on acceleration on hills

You could have any of these problems:
1) vacuum leak- broken air hose or disconnected air hose.
2) water in the gasoline- add a water remover to you gas tank.
3) bad or disconnected spark plug wire(s).
If this were my Forester, I'd take it to a mechanic who has a electronic engine tester..
