Sounds like there is a load of dirty fuel in that gas tank. Ran good for a while after changing fuel filter, then began to run poorly again. Remove fuel tank, drain and clean out, replace fuel filter AGAIN. That should cure it. Hope this helps

My tuscon looses power intermittently, sometimes when accelerating, sometimes when just driving. It will do this for 1-2 days then will be ok for a week before doing it again. I can put into neutral a

Could be be clogged fuel filter or air filter or poor output from fuel pump. Low fuel pressure etc will cause it to "starve" for fuel. Clogged air filters will do similar thing causing it to choke for air. You said it loses power, does that mean it stops running and the engine dies or is it just not giving you as much acceleration as you need.

Could also be the drivetrain like torque converter or transmission depending on the model if it is automatic. If it is standard then it would not sound like a drivetrain problem, my first suggestion if to get your fuel filters cleaned and then have a fuel system cleaning done.

They will physically clean the throttle body and add a solution to the intake while it is running as well as pour an additive into the fuel tank.

First things first, fuel system cleaning, then fuel filter/s. Then check fuel pressure output.

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).
